There are several very nice aprons there. I made the scalloped one and
it's a beauty. It's crossed my mind that an apron made from camouflage
would hide a lot of splatters. I guess a lot depends on whether you're
wearing an apron to protect your Sunday best or you're wearing it to dip
the hawgs for ticks (or whatever). Polly
"Ursula Schrader" <> Hello all,
I vaguely remember that there was a thread about aprons; I think Juno
B. made some for her daughter? Anyway, I discovered that I'm in
desperate need for some new aprons and since I'm a special girl,
size-wise, I think I'll need a special pattern. What I want is a long
apron (maybe knee-length), of course wide enough and with a bib. What
I dislike about my current aprons is that those who are wide enough
form a diamond shaped gap over my bust into which a lot of material
drops, especially at mealtimes, and thus protection = 0. :-( Shorter
shoulder straps are part of the solution, but I feel that tucks might
be so, too. The question would be: where?
I've got a couple aprons from IKEA that have a tunnel on both sides; a
long drawstring goes through it and forms both strings and straps.
Their biggest advantage is that they fit every size. OK, they are a
bit small, but their worst downside is that the protective part moves
along the drawstring so that it won't stay in place. The upside is
that I can pull them as high up to my chin as necessary.
Do any of you know a pattern for an apron for a big-busted,
round-bellied, tall feminine being? And I don't need ruffles and
frills since I like my aprons ironed but don't like household ironing
too much. ;-)
can download the whole shebang free and get an apron pattern that you can size up to fit you
without any problems. You also get a lot of other free patterns. Even one for hats (big grin). The pattern I used for my sister in law was for one that didn't need ties. I have to look it up and I'll get back to you with it. It did come in one size only and you would have to alter it to fit you.
