Marmalady's Vintage Tie Apron sewing pattern was taken from an apron found at the antique mall. The round edges of both the skirt and the front waist give the apron a soft look. The original apron was hand-painted. I took this concept and thought your child or grandchild's hand-prints would be a fun treasure. You also would have the opportunity to be creative on fabric choices and trim on the skirt. The pattern is simple and would be very easy to make. It comes in two sizes (small-medium and large-xlarge).
