I wrote this project for Sewing World magazine, it was published earlier this year. I think I have become slightly obsessed with apron dresses. They are easy to wear and I always love utility styling. This one ties at the front underneath and then ties again at the back. I added graded pin-tucks for a little extra detail.
The great thing about a style like this is the fit it easy, so its not to stressful working out the sizing, there is also room for adjustment when its finished. I love working with linen, its a beautiful fabric with lovely characteristics.
I am currently working on another apron style that I will offer as a sewing class in a good size range and will include a child sizes too! Along with this I will soon be stocking a range of pure linen fabrics as well as linen/cotton blends. All of which would make great apron dresses, as well as a multitude of other great styles and projects.
If you would like to make this but missed the magazine, back issues are available to buy from Sewing World magazine . As always I love to hear from you and see piccies if you have made this project. Of course I am also happy to help in one of my classes too!
