I do not sew but if I did—how cute is this?? Very. And so flattering, right? An empire-waist apron. An empron, let's call it. With that shirred top and waist-flattering ties that can be fastened in the front or back?
And yes, that's right, it's reversible. We highly recommend doing it in two different prints. Not to be gross but a reversible apron is very practical because if, while you're cooking, one side gets too grubby, you can just take it off, flip it over, put it back on and look perfectly respectable again. This pattern is for advanced beginners, say the good people at Emmeline, who also sell kits for this very pattern, featuring some pretty adorable polka-dot and modern floral prints.
