Aprons don’t really work for me, but I don’t always have pockets for all my ‘stuff’ so I designed this to hold the things I tend to misplace (phone, Ipod, scissors, reading glasses, measuring tape, etc.) while I’m sewing.

7. The length of the arm. On my chair the length was 21 inches. Figure 6.
8. The width of the arm cover. Drape your tape measure over the arm and decide how much drop you want on the inside and the outside. Mine are pretty narrow because I was short on fabric…next time I’ll make them a little wider.

I think the nightgown side is okay as it
