love this! you look so cute in it! do you think people would find it odd if I wore a cute apron like this to one of our basketball games? seems like that's where I've been spending all my time lately.

wishes, true and kind

I LOVE your apron! And great fabric choices! I put on an apron a couple of times over Christmas (just a black Starbucks apron), and I haven't worn an apron in years! But, you're right, it did make chores seem more important and I felt more competent for some reason when cooking -- like maybe I actually knew what I was doing -- or at least looked like it. I need to upgrade to stylish with some fun fabrics now! Thanks for the inspiration :)


I think you need to use the same fabric and just finish it all the way around and make a skirt! Beautiful fabrics and I love the knot tie in front (I'm not much of a bow person), it's perfect!


Beautiful work! I always make aprons with enclosed seams; it's just the best way. I love how you made the waistband. I'll keep it in my mental folder of great sewing tips!


I would be afraid to get such a thing of beauty dirty. I'm a messy cook, so I've been wearing full aprons lately -- from my vintage stash (they're already a bit stained and worn).

You did a wonderful job on this and the fabrics are really exquisite. Does this match your kitchen?


Love it & hate the unraveling of the seams after a wash. I'm definitely going to give this a try!


this is sassy and smartly sewn.

I love it! I have several aprons that I wear on a daily basis, and I'm always looking for an excuse to make another. I love your fabrics--they look so great together.


I have two aprons in progress right now. But I like the look of yours as well.

I think I found my newest one, so thanks!

I love the pattern and your choice of fabrics are beautiful! I like it with the knot, probably even more than I would a bow. Thanks for the tutorial!

Love the fabric you chose and you look great!
Thanks for sharing the how-to.

Sooo stylish! I prefer it without the bow myself. Thank you for taking all this time to pull the tutorial together.

absolutely gorgeous...can you say that about an apron...I think so. anyway, your fabric choices were awesome and I can't wait to give this a go.


thank you so much for the fun tutorial - your apron is adorable!!!


Very cute! I have GOT to make an apron one of these days, I always end up wearing a lot of flour whe I bake :-)


I loooooooooooooove it! Ask my girls, I wear an apron alot. I just have one bib and it would be so nice to change it up. Sometimes I wonder if I am "dowdy" because I like them so much. But that apron is not remotely like that! too cute.


I never have thought about the seams before but now that you mention it, I know what you mean. Your apron is SOOOOO cute. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us!


Genius idea!!!! I need to make one-NOW!


Super cute! This looks like a great pattern to have on hand for last minute gifts.


love it larissa!
i don't wear aprons. but if I looked as cute as you I think I would!

Thanks for the tutorial, just finished the apron and a matching set of napkins, that are absolutely adorable! The length of the ties in the pattern though are way too long. I had to keep trimming and trimming. Perhaps you meant 31 inches and not 41?
But thanks, keep up the excellent work! (I'll figure out a way to send a photo of the project!)

I found you on Pinterest and love this apron! It looks easy and cute! I have included it in a round-up on my blog. http://hotcommodityhome.blog.com/2013/04/17/diy-apron-round-up/


I just made this! Thank you for the super easy tutorial!


Found you on Pinterest. Literally had sewn one tissue cover before starting this and I was able, with your directions, to sew this in a half day. Thank you so much for the wonderful tutorial. You are one heck of an instructor.
