  1. This is so beautiful!! (And your pictures are equally beautiful!) Pinned onto multiple boards. I don’t want to forget to make this!

  2. I wear a cross back apron every day! I love aprons, and this style really protects my clothes when I clean and cook and garden, too! I only take it off when I’m going someplace or having company (even then it often stays on!). I wrote about my love of aprons on my blog, too!

  3. I love these cross-back aprons Jenn! I could use one of these for gardening too – thanks so much for the great sewing tutorial! Pinned for when I get the time to sew one!

  4. I love the print you chose! Your tutorial is so clear and easy to follow. I also, want to wear aprons more. Glad to join the April DIY challenge with you!

  5. Hi Jenn, I have a question about the apron, when it comes to sewing it together, you indicate to sew it right sides out. Would it be possible to sew it right sides together and then (leaving an opening) turn it so that your seams are enclosed and then just top stitch around you seams. I realize that the pockets might have to be stitched on afterwards. It seems that this would save on pressing a seam all around and then sewing. Just trying to understand, I’m a relatively new sewer and my sister has asked for an apron for Christmas.

    Thanks in advance,

      1. I thought for sure I had responded to that question a long time ago! Don’t know where the response went. I think that would work just fine! I would still sew the pockets on first so that the stitches are concealed between layers. That’s the best thing about sewing is you can find what works best for you!

  6. Thank you for your clear detailed directions and pictures. I have made chef aprons, but love the look of your apron. Just an FYI, when I needed to make a pattern for the chef apron I used parchment paper, traced an old apron and adjusted the length. For this apron I’ll tape two pieces of parchment paper together, so it’s wide enough. Your use of a tank top to help shape the top was brilliant!

  7. I am wish I could post a picture of my apron! It turned out perfect! Thank you so much for the pattern and tutorial!

    1. Can you e-mail it to me? I would love to see it and then maybe I could share it on Instagram or somewhere if you would allow it! I am so happy that it turned out! They are great aprons!

  8. Wow! I was just telling my mom that I wanted to make one of these. I wear an apron often, though like you I have lots of oil stained clothes because I didn’t wear one. Thank you for the tank top idea! Have a blessing day!!
