basic linen apron

I needed a new apron. Nothing fancy, just a simple plain linen apron to wear while I do my screen printing. I even went to a few stores to have a look, but I came home empty handed. I kind of knew that would happen as I have an incredibly hard time buying things I can make myself (the feeling I'm sure many of you know quite well) :).

So, I finally did what I should have done from the beginning and I made myself this simple linen apron. I followed Purl Soho's Adjustable Unisex Apron free tutorial and I'm super, super happy with how it turned out. Plus, it was such a quick project to make. It took me less than an hour to have this apron all finished.

I used yarn dyed Essex Linen for the main apron and Slub Denim Stripe for the pocket. I even had just the right length of this 1" webbing. I think I got it ages ago at Target's $1.00 section and it felt great to finally use it.

Off I go. Time to take this new apron for a spin and do some screen printing :).

Thanks for reading. Svetlana


  1. So cute yet functional! When I was taking a ceramics class, I made an apron out of an old pair of jeans. It was a lifesaver when things got messy (which is inevitable with me! LOL). I'll have to remember this pattern! :)

  2. It's simply perfect! ... and yes, the more I make the harder I find it to buy certain things ... I could t even but tea towels the other day lol :)

  3. Hi Svetlana! This is beautiful apron! Thank you for sharing the tutorial; great way to make it adjustable. Just in time because I'm starting to make aprons for our restaurant. x Teje
