I was wondering if someon could help me figure out how to cut this apon out. I know it's only one piece and the only place you hve to stitch up is the middle part of the H in the back. Please help! I've tried every way I can think and can't get it cut out in one piece. Thanks

I'm not sure that's all 1 piece, but if it is you'd cut it like this:

(the arm holes aren't shown accurately because I just quickly flipped the existing image you had. and the vertical lines are just to distinguish the front from the back, not cut lines)

edit:
you can just fold it in half on the mid line and cut both halves at once like this:


That isn't a one-seam garment. You have to sew the back "H" as well as the top shoulder seams to assemble it, plus add the apron strings and pockets. Then you have to stitch the arm holes, neck hole and hem to finish it.

hope that helps Smiley

Dyno, you were much faster than I was at getting a drawing together!

I was thinking that you could cut it on the fold (keeping the back seam and the shoulder seams), like this:



Hopefully the image works! And of course, you'd have to give it a little more of a flare at the bottom...

Those are the same things Icame up with but I've seen a few finnished ones on the plainly dressed website and as far as I can tell they dont have sams on the shoulders. That's what is stumping me. Anyway here's a link to there http://plainlydressed.bravepages.com/aprons.html  If I can't figure it out soon I'm just going to put in the shoulder seams.

craftADDchick,
you're totally right. Cheesy we were thinking the same thing. I just edited my post above to be more clear.

sabra325,
those shots are too far away to see the seaming and construction accurately. I wouldn't base your pattern on being able to see seamlines from a photo taken about 6ft away Wink  I'm sure the seams are there. You either have to seam at the shoulders or cut it top/bottom (instead of left/right) and seam at the sides. Smiley

btw, if you cut the front panels and side panels as individual pieces it will allow you to have a more flattering shaped fit, curving to your body.  If you want a looser fit then cut it as one piece.
