Reversible Aprons

I recently took a sewing class my friend Emily taught. I kind of roped her into teaching it, only because she’s an amazing seamstress. We have really bonded with our crazy sewing ideas. And I love learning from her since she’s really good at what she does.

Emily showed us how to make these super adorable reversible aprons. But of course, I couldn’t just follow instructions exactly. I had to revamp mine and change it up a bit to complicate things with my silly ideas. The apron Emily made had a neckband and a neck casing with ties in the top strap. I went without the casing and made my neck band two pieces so it ties at the neck. I also adjusted my measurements then readjusted it again. Hence the different widths between the pink and the brown.

I made the brown/blue one for my mom’s birthday. So happy early birthday, mom! She’s in Taiwan right now and won’t be back until after her birthday. Sad. We’ll celebrate when she’s back home again. If you made something inspired by Simply Modern Mom, please upload pictures of it in our Flickr group to show it off to everyone. You may be featured on Simply Modern Mom.

    OH my goodness these are cute! I made the emmaline apron which is also reversible, but doesn’t have the darling ruffle on the bottom. I love both of them. If you mom doesn’t want hers you can send it to me!
    Thanks for sharing!
