Sewing a kitchen apron with your own handssome mistress manages in the kitchen without an apron. Its main purpose is to protect clothing elements from getting fat and other contaminants. Of course, in the era of rapid development of scientific and technological progress with its microwave ovens, pressure cookers and food processors, the use of an apron is not so important. However, if you sew it yourself, it completely changes the case, and you yourself will not notice how you will wear it in the kitchen all the time. To sew an apron for the kitchen, stock up on the following tools and materials:
- white thread;
- 4 sections of fabric 45x12 centimeters (one of them will need to cut strips in colors A, B, C, D);
- 4-square 13x13 centimeters of color D (gray and yellow strip in the illustration);
- 2 sections of material 112х9 centimeters of color Г (a strip of gray and yellow in the illustration);
- Two square cuts 13x13 centimeters of color G;
- sharp scissors or rotary cutter;
- a cut of cloth 94x45 centimeters (for a skirt) of color B (in an illustration gray with ethnic circles);
- cut material 97x23 centimeters (for the belt) of color B (in the illustration, yellow with ethnic circles).
We make the design of the details-rays. Naturally, shades of fabrics you can pick upon your own. Before starting work, it is recommended to create a kind of trapezoid pattern from thick paper, the sides of which are 11.5 centimeters in height. Using it, you need to cut 20 similar elements. Fold each element twice with a face upward and stitch along the top, retreating to the seam of 0.6 centimeters. The main thing is to correctly execute the first element, while others will do even easier. We collect appliqués. We fasten the elements and cut off the corners with scissorsside, which is folded, only so as not to touch the seam. We turn out all the elements and iron it well. Then we arrange the colored elements in the order of their sewing, which you define yourself. Sew them with a seam allowance of 0.6 centimeters. The order of formation of applications: Ready-made appliance Fold and ironall shovchiki. We take two square cuts of shades G and D, we smooth them well. A cut from pieces of circles with a diameter of 11.5 centimeters. 2 circles folded twice and ironed. The applications are almost done, so we will postpone them for a while to the side. Let's go to sewing an apron skirt. We take a cut of material 94x45 centimeters, bend the bottom from both sides, having pinched the edge 0.6 centimeters inside and iron it. The applications are almost done, so we will postpone them for a while to the side. Take the cut of material 94x45 centimeters, bendbottom on both sides, having pinched the edges 0.6 centimeter inside and ironing. The gate is fixed with the help of pins. Stitch along the line of the folded inner and outer edges. You should get a double stitch. After this comes the turn of the pockets. Placing a pocket on the skirt. We fold twice the skirt and iron it, creating for this time the central axis. Place on one side of the pocket below 8 centimeters from the central axis and fix it with pins. In the middle of the pocket we fold one of the circles twice inside and iron well heated with an iron, thus creating a pocket. We make a pocket on the apron. Straight stitches, gently round the two applications, and the pockets are ready. We form the central fold. From the smoothed central axis in 7-8 centimeters we take a cut and we conduct from a line to the middle, making a fold. Now it needs ironing and fastening with the help of pins. Similarly do from the other side. Create a crease on the skirt The fold is done. We turn to sewing a belt on the apron. The cut of the material 97x23 centimeters must be bent from four sides and ironed. Next, you need to bend it twice along the long side and iron it well on the edge. We fix the belt and the skirt with each other with pins. Then you should stitch the edge of the skirt and secure, with the help of pins, the edge of the fold. The two sides of the belt should remain open. Now you need to sew on our apron belt. Next, we make ties to the apron, for which a 112 x 9 centimeter cut is used. Slightly bending the edges, you need to iron them, then fold them twice and stitch along the outer edge next to it. Each string is inserted into a separate gap, which we left on the belt, fixed with pins and double-stitched. After that, you should sew the ties to the kitchen apron and it's ready. You can wear it with pleasure.
