Some of you might recall that some time ago a friend asked me to make a frilly apron for her to give to her sister-in-law. At the time I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted in a pattern, so took bits and pieces from other patterns to make the apron look how I thought it should look. It is my intention to prepare a tutorial for that apron soon (any excuse to make another one!) but in the meantime thought I could share some of the links that I found that others have shared for patterns for aprons.
I quite like the resurgence of the apron as a fashion statement of sorts! I haven’t worn one for years, but lately have started pulling my old, dated, aprons out of the drawer when I am preparing the evening meal. I have also discovered that they are quite handy when sewing, to protect my clothes from layers of thread and fabric dust. My chicks all love to wear aprons when they are cooking. The two girls have great ones that my sister made them last Christmas, but the boy doesn’t have one of his own at the moment. (He is very big into doing things that ‘men’ do, in this house where he is surrounded by females, so it will have to be a ‘man apron’ I think!)
The collection that follows provides free patterns for a wide variety of styles – sure to be something for everyone in here! As usual, at the end of the list I have included links to lists that other bloggers have prepared on the same topic!
