Wrap- Around Apron

This Simplicity pattern #5201 is very simple to make. All it is, is the front, 2 of the exact same pieces that make the back, which just have shoulder and side seams to sew, and the 2 pockets. That's all there is to it! I've made at least a half dozen of these as gifts. If you want to trim it you'll need 3 packages of Extra Wide Double Fold Bias Tape.The pattern has a longer version too. The green one is a fun retro print with salt & pepper shakers and a boomerang design. The blue one is a garden print.
The pattern is $13.95 but some stores like, Rag Shops, discount patterns.
You could even make this in time for Mother's Day!

You know you're right. After you saying that and seeing them photographed I see what you mean. I just love that there is nothing to tie, they just slip over your head and you put your arms through, and the way they wrap around they're almost like a dress. They really cover well, after all, that's what you really need in an apron!
