Ladies’ Edwardian Apron Pattern


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This Edwardian Apron Pattern was inspired by a beautiful circa 1910-1912 pattern in my own collection. I added more sizes and back ties for a nicer fit. (Click on the image at right see the cover art.)

  • Sizes 8-18 all included in one envelope.
  • Extremely forgiving and adaptable fit!
  • Princess lines makes sewing easy! This is a “beginner” pattern.
  • Online photo instructions available (soon to be available in PDF format).
  • Click to download the Edwardian Apron Pattern yardage chart.
  • Also available for instant download as an ePattern in PDF format!

Note: If you purchased a copy of this pattern prior to 2008, click HERE for corrections/revisions.

    what is the dress under this apron? I really like the neck line and think it looks lovely with the apron.

      Hi, Christy! That’s a very early version of my 1914 Afternoon Dress. It has wide lace insertion down the sleeves and across the tops of the shoulders and again around the neckline.

    These outfits and pattens are lovely, i was just wondering if anyone knew how i could find out how the edwardians had their hair and possibly the make-up?
    If anyone could help i would be most grateful.

      just peeking around I noticed they wear their hair as if they had a spiral perm..then having a ponytail with small braids here and there and a few curly cues making a halo around the face. I am getting a spiral to ad to my Jane Austin creations….hair would need to be just below shoulders….just thought I would ad that…..

        Hi again! Not all Regency hairstyles are curly. There are many portraits of ladies with straight hair. You also do not have to have long hair for this time period, because there was a fad for short hair, called the “a’ la Titus” style. You’ll see this pictured in many fashion plates as well. The hair was cut short to the nape of the neck in back but brushed forward in waves or curls over the forehead (copying the men’s styling of the time). If you run a Pinterest search for “Regency hair a la Titus,” you’ll find lots. Hope this helps!

      it appears as tho a spiral perm would be best…giving all the curly cues one needs for the look, making a halo of curls around the face

      Hello, Gale! Yes, that is the 1914 Afternoon Dress pattern available under the Titanic/Teens section in the Patterns menu at top. Thanks for asking!

    I was just wondering if it would be difficult to enlarge this apron pattern to a super plus size? (4X)

      Hi, Maggie! Yes you can. Follow my online instructions at You will not need to widen through the “shoulders,” since those are straps. Instead, add width to the center front, the hip area (directly next to the pocket) and the back, midway between hip and back edge. Double-check the spread of the center front to make sure you don’t widen so far that the straps are at the very edge of your shoulders, and that will do it!

      Hi, Cheyenne! I have a class for the girls’ version of this pattern, and the steps are nearly identical to the ladies’ pattern (the only difference is that the straps on the girls’ version cross over in back). The class is downloadable and includes step-by-step PDF slides with audio that explains what you’re seeing as you go through the lesson. Hope this helps!
