I finally added half aprons for waitresses and craft show vendors to the product line of my Etsy shop. I write “finally added” because I have been wanting to do this for about a year and only just got around to making and listing the first one a few weeks ago. Yay! The design of these half aprons is based on my own craft fair apron, but with some tweaks that fixed some problems that I found while wearing them at my first craft shows.
The apron is constructed with two rectangular panels of fabric, one larger than the other. The smaller panel forms a large pocket section that is divided into three roomy pockets. The waist edge of the larger panel is shaped with two darts for a better fit at the waist. The darts also serve to create the extra room needed for your hands to easily access the center pocket. I realized from wearing my craft fair apron that the placement and size of these darts were very important for the functionality of the center pocket! The thing I love about these aprons are the endless fabric combinations you can choose. This is my first time using the Little Kulka stacking matryoshka dolls fabrics. I have used the owls and the pink Queen Anne’s Lace fabrics before, but I coordinated them with new fabrics which was fun.
