We first published this post in 2015 and it was sponsored by Little House on the Prairie. We are sharing it again because we love this girls apron pattern and we hope you do too! And yes, five years later, our girls still use these aprons! #LittleHouseMoment
The first item I ever sewed, besides snakes and pillows on my mom’s sewing machines when I was growing up, was an apron.
It was for sewing class in eighth grade. And now, over thirty years later, I still have that apron hanging in my closet and we still use it.
So when I sat down with our girls and looked at the beautiful fabrics in the new Little House on the Prairie® Andover Fabrics Collection to try and decide what kind of project I would sew for the #LittleHouseMoment campaign, creating aprons for the girls popped into my mind.
The girls all cheered on my idea and I began to create my design.
I looked at all of the different styles and talked to the girls about what they liked and didn’t like about them.
I then sat down and sketched out a design and made up a pattern. I sewed up a sample on some extra fabric. Tried it on the girls. Made some changes and then redrafted.
After many hours of sewing, testing, and redrafting… we finally have the FREE PDF Girls’ Apron Pattern download ready for you.
The free PDF apron pattern includes child sizes small to extra large, as well as patterns for 15″ dolls and 18″ dolls.
Carissa’s specialty is designing patterns for dolls and so she took my design and made up doll sized patterns as well. Thanks so much Carissa!
You can find a store near you that carries the collection or shop online.
Susan and I adored Little House on the Prairie growing up. I am definitely going to get the books and the DVD for the girls.
