BSC Perth Reversible Apron

Added Sep 28, 2009

Wellington, New ...






I made this apron pattern and instructions up for my Perth, Australia based BurdaStyle Sewing Club. We made one each at our second meeting on September 12th. It was a huge success and a lot of fun so I thought I would post it for others to give it a go :)
It is a very basic pattern designed not to scare off beginners and has huge potential for personalisation and modification.

Material Notes

You need two contrasting fabrics. For a heavy-duty cooking/gardening apron I suggest heavy cotton/drill/canvas or demin. For a more lighter-weight baking/craft apron then light-weight printed cotton is fine.

    Thanks! This was a great project for my beginners sewing class. They loved making the aprons and even walked home wearing them… Wish I could post photos here.

    I love this pattern. I just made two from thrift store pillowcases as a gift, with matching hot pads of course.

    hello, a big thank you for providing such clear instructions on making the apron. Well done. Will give it a go. I hope to find nice fabric with cooking/baking theme here in France.
