Apron Skirt
by Jil Cappuccio

(Shown on page 43 of Stitch magazine, Winter 2008)

Be fashionably comfortable in this easy-to-sew drawstring skirt made with earth-friendly fabric.  The design uses an apron overlay featuring three bands of color while the rayon-like Tencel fabric not only gives it great drape but allows you to sew “green” at the same time.

Guide to Full-Size Pattern PDF

  1. Download the PDF and save the file where you will find it easily. Once the pattern has downloaded, open the file and check that it has downloaded fully. The first page of the PDF is a layout drawing of the assembled tiles; use this as a guide while putting together the pieces of the pattern.
  2. Print the document as is, at 100%. DO NOT SCALE TO FIT and DO NOT CROP. The files are set up to be printed on letter-size paper (8 ½ x 11").
  3. To ensure that the pattern has printed at the correct scale, find the page containing the TEST SQUARE. The TEST SQUARE should be 2 x 2" (5 cm x 5 cm).
  4. To begin assembling the pattern, cut off or fold the margin on all sides of each page.

The pages are numbered in rows, so the first row of pages is numbered 1A, 1B, 1C, etc.  Line up the rows and match the dotted lines together so they overlap. Tape the pages together, using the illustrated guide to match each piece. Once complete, find your size, pin your pattern to the fabric, and follow the coordinating line to cut out or trace the pattern.

are those pockets, or just layers of varied color fabric? If pockets, I could use this when bbq'ing on the patio.
