Half Apron Pattern

(5 customer reviews)


Made for beginners, our Half Apron Pattern is a quick and easy sewing project that you’ll be able to whip up in just a few hours.

Imagine cooking up your next meal in your kitchen in a vintage inspired apron that’s as cute as it is functional.  You’ll never run out of style options with the reversible apron design, because you can flip it around for a completely different look.

Or what if you showed up at your next housewarming party with a beautifully handmade apron as a housewarming gift.  Your host would appreciate your thoughtful and useful gift!

This super easy apron pattern will show you how to make an apron at home.  It’s perfect if you’re a beginner learning to sew (or even your first sewing project) with step by step picture instructions. The cinched gathered waist is a super flattering shape in a retro 1940s style, complete with a frilly ruffled edge. This DIY apron sewing pattern works great for all adult sizes — size small through plus size — by adjusting the length of the tie band.

Note: You are buying a digital PDF sewing pattern — NOT an actual apron and NOT a physical sewing pattern.  This is a digital download.
