well i used a historical pattern and used some pink calico fabric, the fabric was 1$ a yard and calico makes stains blend in.. i may have used a historical type pattern but this is no costume.. its a real apron for serious cooking.. i used a historical apron because im a beginner at sewing and i couldnt find any other patterns for long aprons..

closeup of the front and calico pattern..

full length.. i wont be dripping on my shins anymore while cooking will i.. sorry that its fluffy out on the side

the back has 2 sets of ties.. the only problem is that i cannot tie the top set myself.. so i will have to make another apron that i will be able to tie myself

my second sewing project..

Super! I was just thinking, if you lengthened the top set of ties, and made the bottom set into loops, then ran the top ties throught the bottom loops, then both areas would be tight and you could tie it yourself, like a corset or shoelaces.
Good luck cooking and crafting!

it must be so great not to get those awkward stains on your legs. I've seen this type of apron with crossed straps in the back so you can put it on over your head

I really like this! I like how it looks like a fully credible dress (I love dresses). I've also been thinking about making an apron for myself, and this gives me some ideas Smiley
