Fabric 1.5 meters
Sewing machine (optional)
Decorative button (large)
Step 1: Cutting the Material
Cut one strip long enough to go around the waist plus 4 inches (use a fabric that doesn't fray) . This strip should be 4-8 inches wide depending on how wide you want the waist band to be.
Cut two rectangle pieces 7inches wide by 16inches long. This will be your apron.
For the pockets cut one rectangle piece 5inches wide by 16inches long.
Step 2: Sewing It Together
Decide which area on the pocket will be the top, and fold over .5 inches and sew the folded area down. (Make sure you sew it were the raw edge faces the inner pocket.) Do the same with the front apron piece.
Align the pocket with the front of the apron piece (bottom edges together, good side facing up) and pin. Measure out 5.5 inches from side and sew a straight line from the bottom up on the pocket, from this point measure out 5 inches and sew another straight line. Congratulations you made the front pockets on your apron!
Lay the bottom piece (bad side up) over the two pieces you just used, making sure the bottom edges are aligned, and pin them together. Sew around the sides and bottom edge. Flip inside out so the good side is facing out again. (The back piece should be longer than the front at this point).
For the waistband fold the fabric you cut in half and sew along the top and sides, leaving the bottom open.
To attach the waistband to the apron: place the raw edge of the back of the apron into the bottom of the waistband, the waistband should completely cover the raw edge. (Make sure to that you place the apron at the edge of the waistband). Sew it.
Cut off excess fabric after sewing.
Sorry if this is complicated, the pictures should help you understand what I'm talking about.
