I'm not sure if these are self-drafted or not, but I love the style, especially the one with the large ric-rack trim. I actually bought one but don't have the talent to copy it and would love to make a different colored-one for a friend and myself. Any suggestions??? I've looked at about 50 websites and the big 4 pattern books, but to no avail. Thanks!! ... arline

Paisley Pincushion's Scalloped Apron has a similar back and you could divide the front yourself.

Try searching for 'cobbler apron', that's what this style is called. That might help you find the right pattern.

Oh yes, that's better!! It IS close, but I don't have the talent/knowhow to draft those princess seams going down the front. They look like straight lines in the pic, but they ARE actually princess style seams with a curve. Any other places to look?? TIA ... arline

Thank you "Stitch" - but I'm not talented enough to draft those two front princess seams. The back IS quite right, though!!

Arline, I will do some cruising a bit later on. I have gone through multiple apron sites myself. If I find anything, I will post it for you.
