The apron- that nostalgic garment once worn exclusively to protect clothes from cooking spills- has totally been transformed. Created in curve-hugging shapes from sassy prints and with pretty embellishments, today's aprons are chic fashion accessories.
Unlike stitching clothes, you don't have to worry about fit- making an apron a perfect project for beginner. If you have basic sewing skills, a handle on laying out patterns, and understand terms like topstitching, you'll find the projects quick and easy to complete.
There are pretty waist and bib aprons, as well as great smocks in cute styles- some are flirty and ruffled, while others are fun and funky. Mix and match fabrics with flair, add fun trims like ribbons and rickrack, and try pockets, hemlines, and waisdtbands in different shapes. The details you decide to include or leave out will give your garment a one-of-a-kind look.
