This is a complete professionally drafted apron sewing pattern and tutorial that I created using a CAD software program and Publisher for the tutorial. The pattern pieces are easy to download, print and tape together, and the apron is easy to sew.

Women’s one-size fits most (US 4-14): Waist 26”
Women’s XL (US 16 and up): Waist 39”
Length 14-15" long

Girl’s (8-12): Waist 23"
Length 13" long

Toddler (4-6) Waist 20"
Length 12" long

There are 3 layered skirts, a heart-shaped bib, a pocket, neck ties, and waist ties. The skirts are a full circle each so they are extra cute and flirty. This style is my signature Diner Waitress style that I have been making and selling here on Etsy since 2009.

I have made it really simple to print the pattern pieces. All pieces will fit on a standard sheet of printer paper, in sections, so that you can print and tape them together. I have gone to the trouble to make it really simple for you. Because I care ♥

About easy to medium difficulty; you should have some experience with the techniques below.
• Sewing bias tape around a curved edge
• Sewing bias tape to a heart-shaped edge, with a pivot point
• Stay-stitching around a curved edge, clipping curves
• Attaching a curved edge to a straight waistband

• Main fabric, for the top shorter skirt, and bib: 1 1/4 yards
• Accent fabric for the under skirt, and all ties: 2 yards
• Bias tape, double fold double wide: 3 packages
• Ric Rac: 1 package
• Purchased ruffles: 1 yard
• Thread

I love this pattern. It was easy to make this larger because I am a plus size girl. Skirt was a little short, so I had to adapt it and make it longer, but that was super easy to change as well. I'm so glad that the creator was so nice to release this pattern. Thanks bunches!
