I made another batch of bistro aprons for my daughter the cook. Her aprons take a beating, so a new batch was in order.
I can get each side of a double-sided apron from a yard of fabric. I gave measurements and instructions for single-sided aprons in this earlier post. For the double-sided apron, make two sides, line up rights sides together, and stitch around the edge, leaving a small opening through which to turn it right side out. Then simply slip stitch the opening and attach the ties.
I tried to give each apron a dark side, and I also positioned darker fabrics toward the top, where my daughter wipes her hands. Piecing different fabrics allowed me to use up some fabrics that were less than a yard.
I got to use up some fun black fabrics.
This apron has a Madonna panel on one side. Perhaps she'll provide some protection from burns and cuts, or insure tasty outcomes.
