Spring 2011 new apron styles ….

Yes I am thinking about spring apron styles, though you wont have to wait until spring for me to release new aprons in these styles … of course I’m months behind the fashion industry but I’ve been busy launching my new aprons for Plus Size Women business and have been pleasantly surprised at how well they have been doing. I have met so many wonderful ladies that have had great things to say in regards to finally finding attractive aprons that actually fit their plus size frames.

For the last month I have been working on an apron pattern from this pattern which is a 1970’s version of a 1920’s style, no ties in the back. This pattern calls for buttons on the shoulder tabs, but I have been working on variations that will allow for some flexibility in fit and ease of getting in and out. I am on my 3rd version of it and the day that I finished it, I put it on to see how the fit was and I didn’t take it off until bed time … I absolutely love this apron for it’s comfort. One of the modifications that I made was to add pockets, I added 1 on each side, nice big roomy ones … this is my all time favorite for serious work.

I’ve completed the pattern for an apron that is very similar to this one … there are shoulder straps that go down to the waist band in the back. To make it adjustable to fit a wider range of women, I am adding D rings at the waist so that the straps will fit through them. Once you’ve adjusted it to fit you, it’s very easy on and off and so comfortable …

I am planning on making the pattern for the red and white check in this next picture …

I do have some really fun styles in the work for Valentines and some great fabrics already in stock that I’m anxious to get started on, look for them starting in January …

and I have some thoughts for garden aprons, nice sturdy and functional aprons that you can wear while working in your gardens...

Please feel free to leave a comment or suggestion about an apron style that you would like to see me make for us plus size ladies...

as I complete the samples of the new styles, I will be posting them here http://www.timelessaprons.com/p/spring-2011-fashion-preview.html

  1. I recently purchased and received the brown wrap apron pictured in your Spring Preview and had to come say how much I love it!! GREAT coverage, very comfy, and the pockets are a nice size, too. And I like that it's flexible enough to wear during pregnancy.

    Can't wait to see it made up in some spring-y pastels. ;)
