Victoria Jones Collection: Busy Diva Apron 408

This pattern line is available exclusively at the sources listed on the Victoria Jones Collection website. In the envelope, you will find patterns for a pot holder and an apron, both reminiscent of a bygone era. There is more to this design than what meets the eye. It teaches basic sewing skills such as how to work with fabric grain, sew along a curve, and make bias binding. The apron comes in one size, but includes instructions on how to adjust the neck straps and waist ties for a custom fit. The pattern has very detailed illustrations and instructions. The pot holder is made from 30 circles, each folded in half, pressed, and folded again aligning the folded edges. Suggested fabrics include light- to medium-weight cottons. The sample apron is in cotton from New York Elegant Fabrics.

(Sized apron “One size fits most” [32.5 in. center-back length], pot holder [8.5 in. diameter])

Style Tip: Mix a variety of pastel fabrics with printed motifs for a more feminine apron.
