2. First cut all of the material to the appropriate width-recommended with leaving room for seems is 28" across. The length should just be for the desired distance. I used three prints and four layers.
4. Make sure that the backing is attached on all sides except for the very top. It is like sewing a pillow. Only sew up to the bottom of the armpit curve also known as the top of the point at which you would attach the ties. The yellow polka-dot material signified to me when to stop sewing on the backing.
5. After sewing three of the four sides, it is time to trace or draw the arm curves. Sew along the line and then cut about 1/2 an inch past the seem.
6. The ties are made at 25" long and 2.5" long before sewing. These are made the same way one would make a pillow. Sew three sides then pull the ties inside out/inside right. Hem the last side and attach to the sides of the apron.
7. The ruffles or pleats for the bottom were suprisingly very easy. The key is a lot of straight pins and careful measuring. The topside flap is 1" and the bottom side flap is 2.5".
8. Sew the pleats with a seem 1.4" from the top. Then attach the pleats/ruffles to the bottom of the apron.
9. the top tie or neck tie is self explanatory/ I don't feel like explaining it.
10. Finished product.
