The fabric is reproduction “vintage McCalls fabric” (and the blue gingham is from the Wizard of Oz collection). I used Simplicity 2492 (pattern designer momomadeit, she makes beautiful retro aprons). I tweaked the pattern so that it is reversible and used jumbo ric rac instead of bias tape. There are lots of variations on the clothespin apron - you can find a free tutorial here, and Simplicity 2011 and 2079 are also excellent options. When the bride saw my apron, she squealed that “so reminds me of your basement” (made me smile as our childhood basement was dusty, but happy place full of patterns).
My sister is what I call an improv sewer. She whipped up these little aprons between feedings :) The fabric was thrifted.
For the bride, I had my heart set on tulle. I used the pattern from Liesl Gibson’s Little Things to Sew and turned the child’s tutu into an adult half apron.
Aprons make me happy.
Have a lovely weekend,
