I want to make my mom an apron for Christmas. I have M5720 in my stash already so don't really want to buy another pattern.

LisaCreated: her version is exactly what I have in mind! The pattern has a ruffle skirt apron but she drafted the top portion to make it a full apron.

Front of apron

Is this essentially a rectangle sewn to the skirt? How big should it be?

Hi Mrs. C,
Can you use the top portion of the other view to determine size and shape? I think that's what I would try using the point where the ties attache as a guide to length. Surely there must be a dot, square or some marking on the full size apron that you can use as a landmark of sorts. Think frankenpattern or, cut and paste.

That make sense...draw a line, so to speak, at the point where the ties are...I can trace off the top part and then match that up. Must remember SA! :)

I should make myself one first as a muslin of sorts!!

Ok, I have the pattern pieces all traced and cut out. The apron has a waistband that is interfaced and folded in half. I can't wrap my head around where to attach the top.

-or-

Should I attach it to the skirt directly and just sew the waistband on top?

I made an apron with a top similar to the one in the photo, but not quite the same since it was trimmed with lace. The way this attached the top to the bottom was through buttons and buttonholes. You'd create a "hem" at the bottom of the bodice of the apron if it's not already lined. Sew three vertical buttonholes in that hem, spaced evenly across the bottom. On the top of the apron, sew the buttons to the waistband. Attach the bodice to the waistband and you have your "apron dress."
