How to Make a Cottage-Inspired Apron
I spent the day working on this apron and had such a hard time of it, that I thought I might better give you some pictures for making this. It is darling and after I finished it, I realized how easy it was. Have fun, but don't forget to put your skirt on the fold!! I couldn't read the fine print and ended up cutting out a daughter size apron. Click on the link for a downloadable pattern and instructions. I have numbered my pictures to go with their instructions. I'm missing pix for the waistband because that part of the instructions didn't print out. Hmm. so I didn't end up taking pictures. I'll upload some later since I will be making several of these.To get started, pick some coordinating fabrics, download the pattern and instructions, cut them out and cut out the strips for ruffles, ties, and piping. A rotary cutter makes this step a lot easier!
Step 2 Make the piping. Sew it to the lower edge of skirt. Step 3 Make the ruffle and hem it.
1. Hem the two ties. 2. Make the points and sew in place. 3. fold a small pleat so the unhemmed edge is only 1 1/4" wide. Stitch in place. Continue with the instructions for making the waistband.
