I found a scrap of this orange cotton fabric with enough left to cut out an apron. Depending on the width, you could probably get an apron out of 1 yard of fabric or less.
I have seen the waistband of aprons done in two different ways: the method I used was to tuck the ends of the ties into the ends of the waistbands while the band had the front side sewn to the gathers, and the band was turned wrong side up to the front. The ends were seamed, catching the ends of the bands, and then the band was turned right side out. I have also seen the waistband narrow-end seam allowances turned under, the band attached to the gathers, then the ties tucked into the ends of the band, and the ends topstitched to hold the ties securely.
I stitched the pocket on with two rows of stitching to make it strong, because at some point it’s going to be stuffed full of green beans or clothespins.
These ties are one layer of fabric narrow hemmed all around. Sometimes the ties are sewn into a tube and turned right side out.
The sides of the apron body are narrow hemmed and the bottom has a machine-stitched 2″ hem.
Time to put on the apron and go make some potato salad.
