aprons.

This year for christmas, I gifted aprons to my co workers, and some of milo’s teachers. Here you will see three of them. They are reversible! I sort of made the pattern up and winged it, but the basis is this:

You need two rectangles – each from different fabric. 26×22 inches (you can go bigger or smaller if youd like, depending on body type)
Put these right sides together and sew, all but the top of the apron. Turn inside out, so the right side fabrics are showing. Iron.
With your basting stitch, make a running stitch along the top and pull the loose thread to sort of gather the apron a bit.

Make waistband – cut from two fabrics something about 2-4 inches (depending how thick you want it )x54 inches. You can join the fabrics together if the fabric isnt long enough. With right sides together, pin and stitch the strips together along one of the long sides. Turn the right way out and press.

Press about 1/4-1/2 inch of the bottom of the other side in. Lay the gathered edge of the apron skirt inside the center of the waistband, placing up from the edge a bit and pin into place. Be sure to align the bottom of the waistband from both sides of the apron (this is tricky, so take your time). Sew the remaining seams shut and be careful because you will see it on the other side as well.
