Help please!

Apron420wMy Artisan Apron pattern is flying out the door (thank you!) and it is nearly time to get another batch printed.

So, I’d like to take this opportunity to improve the pattern.

I’m going to get the apron graded so it will come in a set of sizes (instead of the one it does now). The original size will be the new ‘small’ as I’m getting lots of requests for larger sizes.

This will be a huge improvement!

Please let me know any changes, improvements or tweaks you’d like me to make to my apron pattern and/ or┬áthe instructions.

I want my pattern to be truly good so feel free to let me know what you think. All polite honesty will be much appreciated!

Thank you x

    I made up your pattern and made it reversible and have had lots of comments and requests where I got it from. It is a very good idea to make it in various sizes!

    I’m happy to hear there’s going to be more sizes! I’ve been thinking about sewing one for ages but have been too busy to faff with the grading. Good news.

    Great news! I was going to attempt to grade my pattern to my “curvy” shape but will wait for a bigger pattern. Thank you Janet!

    Oh yes please do make some bigger sizes. I really want to make this apron and am a size 24/26 so would really appreciate it if you could do larger sizes and also let me know how to get hold of the pattern when they are ready.

    I love the idea of this apron and would like to make myself a variety for different jobs i.e. 1 for gardening, 1 for baking, 1for crafting etc etc.

    Hi I have just purchased this pattern and I am definitely not a small! Any advice on enlarging the pattern to fit my size 22 bosoms would be appreciated.

    Could you do an apron pattern in a size 22/24 please. I want to make a few of these ~ one for gardening, one for crafting and one for cooking plus a “posh” one to wear over jeans and t shirt. I craft most of the day and am always wondering whre by glasses, hankie, scisor, phone etc., are. Also I keep chickens so need one for the garden as well. How soon will the new sizes be available and how will we know when it is ready? Is there a newsletter we can sign up to? Love all your things ……..

    I have bought a pattern but, like pendle stitches, need to think about resizing the pattern. How long do you think it will be before different sizes are available? I might be inclined to buy a second pattern if it might be available within a month or so. Mind you – I’m loving the apron and the personalisation so am struggling to wait!

    Hi Janet, I love the apron but like several others would like it in a bigger size, otherwise it is just perfect.

    Hi Janet, I have just met an artist on our local “open studios” event…she was wearing an apron made from your patters & I was really impressed with it. It’s not clear if you still have any patterns left (?) or how much they cost (I could only see $ on the etsy ) I AM a small size ????…..and would love to make myself one of your artisan aprons! Thank you in anticipation,
    Anita (N Wales)

    Hello, I’m excited to begin sewing your Artisan Apron!

    I would like to read the FAQ regarding it before I begin, however I’m unable to find them on the website. Could you please direct me to the correct place?

    Thank you!
