Homebody Apron PDF Sewing Pattern



The Homebody Apron is a vintage inspired cross back apron designed to be functional but also beautiful. View A has a gathered skirt that starts at the natural waist and hits at the knee. View B is a classic, slim style apron that also hits at the knee. The height of the bib and waist can be adjusted with the straps by loosening or tightening them and the length of the skirt can easily be modified depending on the wearer’s height. There is an option included to enclose the skirt seam with bias binding for a lovely, clean finish on the inside of the apron.
