Sew Spoiled Twist Apron

Sew Spoiled Twist Apron
I created the Twist Apron when my sister, who is a bakery diva, had a birthday. I wanted to give her a custom apron that was as unique as her delightful pastry treats. 
What makes this pattern different? It is how you wear the Twist Apron. Here is a short video showing you how to put it on.

Step 1: Cut out your Twist Apron pattern.

                    Style 1                                                         Style 2 (Shown above)
 


Style 1 
Fabric A:
Wrap Bib- 15”X 50”
Ties- 2- 6”X 44”
Waistbands 2- 3.5”X 22”
Fabric B:
Panel 18”X 22”
Pocket 13.5” X 6.5”
Interfacing Waistbands 2- 3.5”X 22” 








Style 2
Fabric A:
Wrap Bib- 15”X 50”
Panel 18”X 22”
Pocket 13.5” X 6.5”
Fabric B:
Ties- 2- 6”X 44”
Waistbands 2- 3.5”X 22”
Interfacing Waistbands 2- 3.5”X 22”



Step 2: Fuse the interfacing to the waistbands measuring 3.5” X 22”. Set these aside.

Step 3: Create the apron pocket. Fold the pocket fabric right sides together and stitch along the raw edges. Leave an opening so you can flip it right sides out. Flip it out and iron flat.

WIP

Step 4: Pin in place the apron pocket 4” from the 18” side and 5” from the bottom 22” side of the apron panel and sew the pocket onto the apron panel. 

WIP

Step 5: Fold and iron the raw edges of the 18” sides of the apron panel twice, then fold and iron the bottom 22” side. Sew around the three edges of the apron panel.

WIP

Step 6: Fold and iron the long 50” raw edges twice, then fold the raw edge of one short edge measuring 15” and sew along the three edges.

WIP

Step 7: Gather the bib short end that still has the raw edge until it measures 10”. 

WIP

Step 8: Sandwich the gathered apron bib between the waistbands measuring 3.5” X 22”, 2.75” from the edge and 1” over the center fold mark.

WIP

Step 9: Sew the ties to each short ends of the waistband measuring 6”.

I love this apron! I do have a question, what is the difference between the two patterns? Is there two different styles? If so whats different about them? Also would you mind if I added this to my Pinterest? Thanks Trish
