Indygo Junction Pattern Parade: Fabric and Pattern Giveaway

Welcome to Sew Much Ado, today’s stop on Indygo Junction’s Pattern Parade Blog Tour!

First, a bit about Indygo Junction and the fabulous Amy Barickman – the woman behind it all!

Indygo Junction Inc., founded by creative entrepreneur Amy Barickman, is an established sewing and crafts business that offers stylish and timeless high-quality patterns and a variety of idea-rich project books. Amy continues to work with artists and designers from around the world to create unique projects, having sold over 2 million books and sewing patterns.

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!

  59. I love aprons & polka dots…what could be better the the two together?? It would be fun to look so chic while cooking …maybe the food would taste better?? :-)

  60. Very cute apron. I’m not sure which apron I’d make. I think first I’d made the child sized pattern for my Granddaughter because she’s at the age to start helping in the kitchen.

  61. I can just see my daughter, daughter-in-law, and I in matching aprons preparing our annual Thanksgiving feast! How cool would that be?


  62. I have a pattern similar to this one with the flounce on the bottom, but I like the top of this one so much better. Would definitely make this pattern.

  63. Since I don’t have any small children around, I would start with the adult one, and perhaps make some for my “adult” children!

  65. I would make the adult and doll as I am a doll collector! =0) This apron is so cute, I love the half back as I’m usually hot enough in the kitchen without more fabric covering all of me! (click on my name or the kitty pix, on my blog profile page you’ll find the link for my email.)

  66. I love this pattern… I would make and adult and child…my middle g-daughter loves to cook with me…this would be awesome.

  67. I’d most likely make the child size for my daughter, but she would love matching me, so I might make the adult size too!

  68. I would make the adult size for my daughter. What I like best about this pattern is the cute flared tier on the bottom. It makes the apron look alittle bit feminine but not too much!
