Kitchen attire for my assistant

Wednesday, April 13, 2016
The other day I was putting away a piece of fabric when Miss K suddenly piped up "you could make me an apron out of that". I was a little bit surprised because, one she was right and two, I always forget to put in apron on when I cook so I was amazed that she knew the importance of not splattering your clothes with ingredients.

The piece of fabric was found whilst rummaging in the remnant bin at Ikea (I've already used the other half for another project but I'll tell you about that another time).

I've never made an apron before so I found these instructions and then instantly modified them. The instructions are for a reversible apron which I don't really want. They also said to draw the pattern on to a piece of paper, cut out the piece of paper and then draw around the template.....why wouldn't you just draw straight on to the fabric?

Here you can see my assistant attempting to steal my iPad.

Of course the thread had to be hot pink.
and then I had to stop work because my assistant got pins and needles in her feet.
Eventually it got all sewn up and had to be tested.

Here is what I think is the finished product. My assistant has plans for iron on patches.


  1. OMG that's just so cute! I've been thinking about getting an apron lately, I tend to be a bit messy and then not even notice the splatter underneath my boob. I was going to buy the denim one from larkstore for Mother's Day, but you've inspired me!

  2. Honestly it was really easy and only took me a couple of hours (mainly because I'm slow at stitching!)

  3. I need to make an apron for my friend Roy (bought the fabric for it ages ago). I had just been thinking I should make one for my friend's 6 year old daughter too - then I saw your post! How long is Miss K's?

    1. Hi Chai69, the body of the apron is 51.5cm long (excluding the neck strap). Miss K is 115cm tall.

      If I were to make another one, I would make the neck strap adjustable, either fastened with a button or two straps tied at the back.
