I would like to make this apron as a wedding gift for DHs cousin. Before anyone scolds me on the no-no message that giving a bride an apron sends, trust me, she'll LOVE it. She is begging everyone for baking stuff, recipes, etc, as she has recently discovered cooking. I've gotten some eyebrows acting like I'm trying to throw women back to the 50's housewife era... I'm not, promise! I just want to surprise the bride with a super duper apron! I'm also going to make one for the groom in a manlier fashion.
Both are nerdy, so I'm theming them for Star Wars.
Anyhoo, for the bride I would like to use this pattern: http://www.michaelmillerfabrics.com/Blog/Classic_Apron.pdf
Can anyone give me tips for how to size it? I am a novice at sewing, but think I can manage this. I am a 10/12 myself, so I'm not sure if I can measure it for me and wing it. I haven't seen the bride in a number of years, but she is a bit curvier than me.
Maybe I'm just over thinking this and the size in the pattern would be ok for her? I just don't want to make it awkward and get the size too small/big.
I'm starting to freak out, can you tell? The wedding is in October!!
