The second outfit I made for Project Paperdoll is a three-for-one special and is inspired by Cut Out + Keep's crafty superhero, Crafterella with a comic strip skirt, fan girl top and costume style kitchen apron!
The final pattern is for a kitchen apron designed in the style of Crafterella's costume with a bodice style top and tool belt bottom, measuring tape neck strap and pockets full of kitchen utensils. The design is printed on sturdy cotton duck fabric and includes all the cutting and folding lines needed to make the apron, so it's a breeze to construct. It's available to buy now from from Fabric On Demand.
Luckily you don't need a pattern for this project as the cutting lines are included with the print. Start by cutting out the apron along the outside dashed line and the straps along the outside coloured edge.
Flip the straps over so that the wrong side is facing up and fold all the edges in along the marked line. Press in place.
Fold the straps in half and sew around the outside edges.
Flip the apron over so that the wrong side is facing up and then fold the outside edges in to the second dashed line and press in place.
Fold the outside edges in again to so that the straight line, press and sew around the outside edges.
Sew the two straps in place at either side of the apron so they match the waistband.
Flip the apron over so that the right side is facing up. Stitch either side of the tape measure strap to either side of the top of the apron.
