How to make a basic man apron for your own design.
My Dad's birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and I got told to 'make something unique'. We've always had a joke about the kitchen becoming a no kids zone on a Saturday night so Dad can cook Mum a nice romantic meal, and even now I'm moved out if I stay over the weekend the rule is upheld.
Hence, the manly apron. You can add whatever design you like, this tutorial gives you the basic apron and the rest is up to you.

Firstly, cut your fabric into a rectangle where the width is your/ your intended man gift receiver's chest width; and the length is from breast bone to knee (don't worry if this sounds long - it gets made shorter). Remember to include a 2cm seam allowance.
Fold your fabric in half length ways. measure four inches from the fold and make a mark, and measure down the outward (non-fold) edge the distance between your breast bone and bottom of your armpit (approx six to eight inches) and make a mark.
Cut down three or four inches from the first mark, then make a smooth curve as shown to the second mark. Unfold and you'll have your apron shape, symmetrical on both sides.
