123  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Lolita Apron Tutorial on: January 02, 2011 08:55:25 AM
I got the idea to make this apron from the Lolita clothes website. I always fancy to buy a piece of Lolita style dress or clothing. But of course they are not cheap and also i dont think i have to courage to wear them out. So in stead, i design some simpler version but Lolita inspired fashion outfit so i can wear them around the house or even wear them out if i want to.

Anyway, I hope you like my blog and my creations~

Step  1: Make The Top Portion

Draw a big heart on newspaper and use that as pattern to cut out the fabric. Finish the edges by fold toward the back and sew along the sides. Make ruffle with thin long pieces of extra fabric. While sewing a line in the middle using the sewing machine, gather the fabric and fold them as you sew.  Then Sew them along the 1 inch line of the heart shape apron top.

Step 2: Make The Straps And Waist Band

Cut out 1 long piece of rectangle fabric for waist band. the length has to be enough to go around your waist at least 3 to 4 times to tie a bow. Fold the edge and sew it to prevent framing. Then make two shorter straps for shoulder straps length all the way across the back of your waist. Add extra fabric along the outer side of the shoulder straps for a fancier look.

Step 3: Cut Out And Make The Lower Portion

Roughly measure your waist size for the lower part of the apron. I thought it would be fun to make the lower edge in cloud shapes. As usual, finish the edges and add extra ruffle along the 1 inch line. That matches the top design and give the whole look a more cohesive feeling.

Step 4: Connect Three Parts Together

Most important part of the DIY is the connecting part. Bring out your threads and needle or a basic sewing machines. Simply sew along the previous sewing line to hide the new seems. Sew the bottom part of the heart to the middle of the waist band and also place the lower portion in the middle of the waist band then sew them together. Also add finishing touches like ribbon bows, ruffles, or rhinestones where ever you desire. Its your design, have fun!
