I’m cooking more meals at home, and enjoying more complex recipes. I don’t know about you, but I am not a neat cook. 🙂 Just ask my husband. I’ve always got several tea towels on the counter, and still end up wiping my hands on my clothes. Time for an apron. I decided I wanted a pinafore apron with back cross straps.
I looked at a lot of ready-to-wear versions and came up with this pattern that fits mosts sizes. With the center front panel, it gives you more room to reach and stretch for those pans in the back corner of the cupboard, the cross straps move with you and nice big pockets hold tissues!
I chose to use three different fabrics, all in linen. Linen is a great choice of fabric type for aprons, as it wears and washes well.

What is a pinafore apron?
A pinafore apron covers the bodice of the garment, protecting from spills and splatters in the kitchen, garden or studio. This free apron pattern offers cross back straps making it easy to put on and comfortable to wear. It also includes big side pockets to put a towel in the kitchen, trowel in the garden or other supplies you might need handy.
A perfect apron for my messy cooking!
