New version of Artisan Apron, with 3 new larger sizes, fabric cutting diagrams and some new photos! And now includes new embellishment ideas sheet too!

* * * * * * * * * * *

The pattern sheet included is graded with seven sizes: S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL

Note, the curved and cross-over shape of the back pieces allow the apron to expand and flare out, meaning each size in the pattern covers a range of dress sizes. It is really tricky to be definitive about this, but we have created an approximate sizing guide which is shown on the pictures for this listing for your reference.

When I had two small (ish) boys and worked from home in a little studio just off the kitchen, most days I found myself getting distracted by all the chores and housework and not really getting much work done. After much thinking I realised that if I had a work uniform I would feel and look like I was at work. So I designed and made my Artisan Apron and it is so lovely and pale and clean and embroidered and special that I don't clean the house or brush the dog instead of working because I don't want to spoil my pinny!

As time has gone on I've added embroidered sayings and motto's such as 'she believed she could and so she did' and badges and bits of lace and buttons and now when I put on my apron in the morning I feel creative and inspired and ready for work. And when I take it off I feel 'off duty' and that is a simply marvellous feeling.

My Artisan Apron is inspired by a vintage pinny and has curved seams, pockets and a cross-over back. The curved and cross-over shape of the back pieces allow the apron to expand and flare out to allow for a wider variety of sizes to wear it. It is comfortable to wear and not that tricky to make either.

There are lots of videos on my You Tube channel with hints and tips of how to put the apron together and altering the fit should you wish to. You can find them here:

The pattern is sent to you in a plastic sleeve for safe keeping and includes:

# A full size paper pattern printed on A0 paper. Seven apron sizes are marked: S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL and 4XL. Just cut out your desired size - an approximate sizing guide is also shown on the pictures attached to this listing for your reference. I am modelling the small size in the photographs.

# A full colour A4 leaflet with detailed instructions and photos with lots of ideas to inspire you to embellish and decorate your apron.

The pattern is suitable for linen and cotton fabrics.

I used a linen to make the main body as it drapes so beautifully, and a contrasting cotton/linen blend lining. We have sourced similar fabrics which are available as a fabric pack here:

I have also put together a pack full of embroidery thread, fabrics, notions and templates to help and inspire you with embellishing your apron just like mine. It is available here:

I’ve been looking for an apron like this for forever! The ones I could buy weren’t exactly to my vision, so I was thrilled to find this pattern! It was very easy to follow along and the apron came out beautifully! I made one for a friend for Christmas and will be making one for me soon!

I'm so pleased with this pattern. It arrived promptly and is so well presented. I love the layout of it as it's on strong paper instead of tissue, so it's much easier to trace the pattern pieces. The instructions are clear. I love the design of the apron and have almost finished my own. I can't wait to add my embellishments.

Despatched so quickly! Clear pattern. I’ve only been sewing since May, and I managed. Unlike on many free video tutorials, this apron is lined, so quite a bit of fabric, but I think the end results make that worthwhile. My sister loved her gift.

This is my second purchase of the pattern, I'm buying it for a friend as she loved the apron that I made for myself and I think she'll love making this for herself. Fabulous pattern!
