Yesterday I wrote about Betz White’s latest Craftsy class, The Easy Modern Apron, but what about the apron itself? Today I’ll be talking about how my version sewed up and give you a coupon code for 50% off this class.
The Easy Modern Apron is a bib style design with princess seams and (optional) pockets. The skirt has angular panels that are pieced together so it’s perfect for showing off contrasting fabric and is what gives this apron it’s modern edge. However, the instructions allow you to make this as one color, two fabrics (for contrasting ties and pockets), or in three fabrics – which really showcases the design element.
I opted to make my version in two fabrics, largely because I had these on hand and they worked together so well. However, now that it’s finished I wish I would have looked for a third print because my fabric blends together so well that you miss the cool design element to this pattern. I’ll remember this for the next one!
As for construction, my apron came together without a hitch – even the princess seams went together without puckers and lined up perfectly! Since I had watched the video before sewing, I already knew what to expect, but I found the instructions easy to follow as well. Plus the sewing was fast too – after cutting everything out (you’ll need to use a combination of ruler\rotary cutter and pattern pieces), I was able to sew this up in an afternoon.
