Cupcake Apron

I made this apron for my Grandmother using the Scalloped Apron Pattern by The Paisley Pincushion. The apron is reversible, has darts, three pockets on each side and features a scissor back.

Project Notes:
  • I made this apron in size B.
  • I lined the pockets. I sewed them with right sides together and then flipped them right side out. I thought this made creating the scalloped pockets easier...for me at least.
  • The recipient did not want to reverse the apron so I only put pockets on one side.
  • I thought the pattern was well written and easy to follow.
  • Be sure to clip it really close to the stitching where the scallops meet on the edges of the apron. I had to keep yanking those parts back through the small opening left for turning to re-clip them so they would iron nice and flat.
  • The only thing I wish was different is the amount of fabric used on the scissor back. It's pretty much two layers back there when you are wearing it because each back piece is so large. That's just my ipersonal preference though. As it is, It will definitely keep your clothes clean!
  • Cupcake fabric is "Confections" by Robert Kaufman fabrics.
