This contest has ended. The Crossback Reversible Apron is one of our favorite patterns from the 2015 line. We were inspired by a vintage pattern that we found in a French magazine. The simple style and graceful lines of the apron were too nice to pass up - we had to make a modern version! What really drew us to this style was the back of the apron. We know so many people who don't like aprons that tie around their neck. It can be uncomfortable and affect the fit of the apron. The crossback style, which is supported on the shoulders evens out the distribution of the apron, creating a nicer line and taking the weight off the neck. One feature we added to the apron was a pocket - I mean you have to have a pocket, right? Also, instead of hemming the whole apron, we decided it would be more fun to make it reversible. That way you get two aprons for the work of making one! We love this apron for cooking, cleaning, gardening - there are so many uses. In fact, we thought that it was such a great utilitarian piece that we needed a version for kids. That way when you are baking Christmas cookies or planting veggies in the garden, their clothes can be protected as well. This contest has ended.
