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 ePattern.
  • 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.
  • Available for instant download!
  • This pattern is rated intermediate, but I’ve had beginners make aprons with minimal assistance from an experienced seamstress on steps like the binding.

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

  1. 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.


  2. 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.


    • 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!
