- Attach the skirted flounce portion to the main body of the apron, wrong sides together.
- Sandwich the pieces into the double fold tape and stitch thru all layers.
- Press bias tape "flap" toward hem of the apron. You could topstitch that flap down onto the flounce if you wanted.
- Bind with bias tape the main body of the apron. Start on one side continuing down and around the flounce hem and then back up the other side. ***I rounded the flounce hem corners slightly so that I wouldn't have to miter the bias tape.
- Bind the top neck edge of the apron with bias tape.
- Position bias tape along curved armpit edges leaving enough for ties and then making a loop for the neck opening.
- Wear and look great! Have fun canning! Congrats Ann Y. on winning!
- 1 yd. fabric (this piece was an Alexander Henry from Jo-Ann's: Apples + Pears) ***If I were making this for myself--an over 6-footer--I would buy 1 1/4 yd. to enable it to be cut longer.
- 2 pkgs. Extra wide double fold bias tape - 1/2" in Seal Brown.
Pattern:Mom's New Apron
I really like how this little experiment turned out and think this might be my new "go-to" style apron from now on.
