Today I’m excited to share one of Indygo Junction’s new patterns with you! When you’re ready to get busy in the kitchen, The Dressed Alike Apron has you covered. In fact, it can also cover your little kitchen helpers! This pattern comes with three variations: adult, child, and doll, for a trio of cute kitchen toppers.
The square-cut neckline goes over the shoulders for a comfortable fit, and ties at the waist on both sides. A fun flounce along the bottom edge provides extra coverage and a cute bit of flair, and a handy pocket in the front offers the right amount of space for your odds and ends.
This pattern comes in just five, easy pieces, and is a great project for beginners.
Indygo Junction was kind enough to send me fabric and the pattern to try for myself, and I had the womens’ sized apron sewn up in a couple of hours! It was a really enjoyable project to sew, and I think the design would be great for a lot of different activities, from cooking to gardening.
I also like how the back is a full piece - with three little kids I need all the coverage I can get!
And that’s not all…
