new apron

This is a bias cut flapper apron and the second one I made from this pattern. I got the pattern on Ebay from
It has 2 versions, one is a single layer of fabric and the edges are finished with bias tape. The other is a lined version. I made my first one with 2 different pink fabrics. The one in the picture is an apple print on both sides and the pockets are trimmed with black rick rack. If I find a good deal on a couple of packages of the same color bias tape at a thrift store, I will make the bias trimmed version.
I like this pattern because it sews up so easy, looks feminine and also because the pattern is very wearable, it fits around my neck and just rests on my shoulders. It does not put pressure on or pull down my neck like a regular chef apron.
I have been wearing aprons for years because I am so messy and the aprons really protect my clothes. For 2 1/2 years, I was a fraternity cook and I always had on aprons at that job.


  1. I absolutely LOVE the colors in that apron and the shape of it as well.. Great job.
    Wish I could sew...
