This cute retro-style apron has lots going for it, with no strings attached! It's reversible (Halloween one side, Christmas the other!), it provides ample coverage on all body types, it has roomy pockets, and -- best of all -- it has no ties to complicate matters. Whip up several for Christmas gifts and you'll have your list covered.
NOTE: If you would like some uninterrupted secret sewing time, the classroom will be available after class, until closing, for you to continue working on your project.

Cut out the pattern pieces as required on the pattern (main body, strap, pockets). Two things to pay attention to when cutting out the main body: 1/ make sure you place the fold line on the fold before you cut! 2/ pay attention to the orientation of directional fabric, and 3/ be careful cutting around the neckline because the fabric you cut away becomes the pocket.
