    I accidentally cut one of the 26×40 apron pieces on half and of course I don’t have enough fabric to cut another. Do you think I could use it as the inside and sew it together as long as I shorten the outer to account for the seam allowance on the inner one?

      Hi Michele, YES!!!! Sewing is all about working around our mistakes lol 🙂 I love the idea of putting it in the middle. I would use a 1/2″ seam allowance for this and then press the seam open before continuing along. You could also trim along this seam with some pinking shears to stop any future fraying. It will still end up as a great apron in the end. Enjoy your hard work and Happy Sewing!

    Wonderful tutorial. The instructions were clear with the pictures understandable. The use of the French seam finish gives the apron a professional finish. Ten thumbs up. This will be a recommended tutorial.

    I love this pattern, so cute! I bought some cute fabric with a pattern that is one way and I am trying to figure out it the 40″ is the length that is folded up or it goes around the waist. Want to make sure I get it right before I cut the fabric.
