Aprons are fun, functional and easy to sew. This free sewing pattern for an apron refashioned from a dress was adapted with permission from "D.I.Y.: Kids" (Princeton Architectural Press). Authors Ellen and Julia Lupton suggest making an apron that matches your kitchen, or recycling an old party dress so that you can feel fancy when you're hard at work.
Grown out of a favorite dress? The pretty floral frocks in your closet make great aprons for wearing around the kitchen, garden or studio.
