Sew a simple apron to effectively protect clothing when cooking or washing dishes is very simple.
Sew one-piece apron and decorate itOwn taste - applique, embroidery, flounces, pockets of unusual shape, etc. This apron protects the clothes better than the simple apron described earlier.
We begin work on the apron with the choice of fabric. Perfectly suitable natural cotton (chintz, satin, as produced in the Soviet period). If you find at home purchased and forgotten cuts of such fabric - fine, because then it was a very good quality product. You can also use denim, linen.
If you have never sewed an apron, Pre-build a pattern on paper, And then pin it on the fabric and cut out the details of the apron (experienced craftsmen can draw the right silhouette on the fabric right away). Do not forget about the allowances for seams (0.5-1 cm).
Preliminarily measure the desired shapeSize of the product (AB - width of the upper part of the apron, BB - height of the upper part, SH - length of the lower part). Approximate sizes of an apron for a woman are given on the diagram, but they can be adjusted as desired.
Build a pattern of the main part. It is a hexagon, the two upper sides of which are concave (they can be built and straight, but it will be more comfortable in such an apron as in the photo). Also, we cut two narrow rectangles (ties) and one smaller rectangle (a little ball on the neck). Pocket or two pockets cut to your own taste and desire - big or small. You can not do them at all, because not everyone uses them.
The order of sewing an apron is as follows: We trim the apron with an oblique blind from the same fabric or suitable in color (the width of the beak can be about one and a half centimeters). We sew the strap and the straps. The last detail is the pockets. The apron is ready.
Helpful advice: It is more convenient to sew a bra with two details so that you can tie it around your neck. In this case, the apron will suit any member of the family - from the smallest to the highest.
