Materials List

  • 1 yd cotton print fabric, 42” – 45” wide
  • 6” ruler
  • Rotary cutter and mat or scissors
  • Coordinating thread
  • Tailors chalk or other fabric marking method of your choice

Instructions:

  1. Square up fabric.

  2. Trim off both selvedge edges.

  3. Cut fabric into six pieces that are 6” tall by full width of fabric.

  4. Line up the cuts short end to short end and sew into one long piece using flat-felled seams.

  5. Cut long strip into pieces as follows, letting the flat-felled seams fall where they may:
    Top Tier: 25"
    Middle Tier: 50"
    Bottom Tier: 100"

  6. Set remaining fabric aside for sash.

  7. Mark center of each strip at top and bottom.

  8. Make a mark 2 ½” in from each short end at top of each tier.

  9. Using a basting stitch, run two lines of stitching ¼” apart near top edge of each tier, beginning and ending at the 2 ½” marks.

  10. Make a ¼” rolled hem at bottom of third tier.

  11. Gather Top Tier until it measures 18” across at top edge.

  12. Gather Middle Tier until it measures 25” across at top edge.

  13. Gather Bottom Tier until it measures 50” across at top edge.

  14. Right sides facing, and matching center marks and side edges, pin Middle Tier to Top Tier, and Bottom Tier to Middle Tier, adjusting gathers as needed to make them look even.

  15. Stitch Tiers together.

  16. Optional: For the sake of durability, if you have access to an overlock machine feel free to overlock the Tier seams, or zig zag over them with your regular sewing machine if you wish.

Side Hems:

  1. Press under 1 ½” of fabric on each side towards the back.

  2. Press under ½” of fabric and top stitch into place for a 1” finished side seam.

Sash:

  1. With right sides facing, fold remaining strip together lengthwise, mark the center.

  2. NOTE: It’s possible, if you are making this for someone with a tiny waist, that you have a sash that’s too long. Feel free to cut off any extra now, and put the leftovers in your scrap stash, or use some to make a patch pocket.

  3. Mark 7 ½” out from each side of center mark.

  4. NOTE: This makes the apron fabric 15” wide. If that seems too wide or not wide enough for the person meant to wear the apron, feel free to adjust the opening!

  5. Cut each short side to a 90 degree angle as shown in photo.

  6. Sew each side of Sash from end of point to mark before center mark. This will leave a 15” opening.

  7. Clip the corners at the points, turn the Sash right side out, and press, pressing the seam allowances of the 15” opening towards the opening on each side.

  8. Insert the assembled Tiers into the opening, just far enough to cover the gathering stitches, and pin into place.

  9. Topstitch all the way around the Sash, starting at either point.
