Dogwood Apron


Size Range: One Size (Belt sizes are provided and easily adjusted for any size).

The Dogwood Apron is a working apron for your sewing room, woodshop, garden, or anywhere else you need a hand! It is a lined apron that buckles around the waist or hips and holds all your thingamabobs and whatchamacallits. A hidden welt pocket is perfect for keeping things safe and two tabs offer places for scissors, safety goggles, or keys! The lining provides an opportunity to have fun with fabric choice and the hardware gives it a modern look. The Dogwood Apron is a great scrap-buster, a perfect gift, and an excellent project for adventurous beginner sewists!

The Dogwood Apron is a collaboration between Helen’s Closet Patterns and Dogwood Denim.
