Retro aprons are super popular these days - and if you have been wondering how to make your own apron, this is the perfect sewing pattern for you! Sew your own women’s retro apron for a cute and fun addition to your kitchen décor that is truly timeless. The Jessie Apron is as cleverly designed as the gorgeous retro dresses from the 50s with a three-piece sweetheart neckline bodice that molds to the female shape instead of just covering up, a curved slimming waistband, flattering full circle skirts, and a pocket large enough to hold essentials. Make your favorite version – a full apron with either a single skirt or with double skirts OR a half apron with either a single circle skirt or double skirts in a cute cotton print for ease of care.
Cute and practical, wear your “me-made” Jessie Apron to make cooking, entertaining, and cleaning fun. It is sure to become one of your go-to accessories and you will want to make one for every season and occasion. You may find creating these beauties to be so easy that you make them for your friends, family, and even to sell online or at craft shows, which is awesome (see the copyright details below)!
This easy-to-use sewing pattern will take you through the steps to making four versions of the Jessie Apron, with crystal-clear instructions and photos that show you how to sew each step. And, it's in PDF format which is available for instant download, because; let's face it, who wants to wait around? We know you want to get started right away!
