I don't know about you, but I am definitely an apron gal. That's not to say I cook. I really hate cooking, but I have to do it anyway. What I hate more even more than having to cook every day is getting food stains on my clothes! So I always wear an apron. Even if I'm just frying an egg.
That's why I was so excited when someone from Stash Books emailed me about writing an apron pattern. Immediately my mind went in a million directions. I want you to take this pattern and make an apron that fits your personality... no matter what your style!
Wanna see what I mean?
Do you like gathers? Are you kind of a Little House On the Prairie type? I feel that way sometimes. Well this is the style I made for you!
But maybe you'd rather pull out your hair than gather fabric. Maybe you would wear a skater dress with a sweetheart neckline.
Here you go! The two half circles on this apron skirt make a darling peplum effect, with no gathering at all.
Or... maybe your kitchen is a little bit spicy, little bit rhumba! Here's a halter version with a plunging neckline (don't worry, you'll probably have clothes on underneath, lol). This is the sleek half circle skirt with ruffles around the bottom to kick it up a bit.
All of the aprons have nice wide ties that you can tie in the back or make longer to wrap around and tie in the front. The skirt and top are attached using the Burrito Method so there are no raw edges showing anywhere.
But that's not all... if you are a mixed personality, that's okay! You can mix and match all 3 of the apron tops and all 3 of the apron skirts to make exactly the apron that you want. Or leave off the top portion and make any one of the 3 skirts as a half-apron. Now do you see why we called it the Flirty Dozen Apron pattern. We counted 12 different options.
Stash Books packaged it up so nicely with a sturdy envelope, instruction booklet, and paper pattern sheet (not tissue paper!).
I'm so pleased with the way that everything turned out, that I want to giveaway 3 copies of the Flirty Dozen Apron pattern to my readers. Use the gleam widget below to enter.
And when you make one use hashtag #flirtydozenapronpattern on Instagram so I'll be sure to find it and see. I can't wait to see how YOU put it together. :)
