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.


SIZES: ❤
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

STYLE: ❤
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.

ABOUT PRINTING: ❤
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 ♥

DIFFICULTY: ❤
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

MATERIALS NEEDED: ❤
• 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

FAQ: ❤
Q: Can I use this apron tutorial to make aprons to sell in my Etsy shop?
A: Yes!

Q: What if I can't find my digital download PDF that I purchased?
A: This link should explain how to find your files:
https://www.etsy.com/help/article/3949

Q: I see your pattern listed several times in your shop, with different “cover” photos, are they the same pattern with different pictures?

A: Yes, they are the same. The reason I do this is to show the many different styles you can make.
