I agree with you Donna. Cute idea, but just add the ties.

After seeing the picture of the finished product on the mannequin, all I could envision was it draping over an open flame on the front burner if you were reaching across to pots on the back burner.

Have you ever seen a chef/cook in a commercial establishment wear an apron like that? Of course not! They must comply with certain safety regulations. As the daughter of a Safety Engineer for an insurance conglomerate I learned to look at everything with safety in mind. If you like the pattern, at least make a separate long tie (and keep it in the pocket) that would fit most all sizes. Watch the fat and the skinny chefs on TV to see how they tie their aprons...front or back (once or twice around, in other words) for SAFETY sake!!! Is it any wonder that the style went out of vogue years ago considering how litigious our society is? I doubt that you will find a commercial manufacturer of this style apron...they don't want to be sued. Sorry...I'm off my soapbox now. Stay safe!

In my mind, 'my' apron would be a heavier towel, rather than light-weight fabric . . . and my range is electric. Still, I suppose it could present a problem, if one wore it for cooking.

It looks very cute but dangerous, I too would be afraid of starting a fire, I'd definitely put ties on it. I'm going to use your tutorial and make these only shorter and call them bibs for the elderly or myself when eating seafood, or other messy foods. I've ruined so many of my blouses and tucking in a paper napkin doesn't always work.

My goodness ladies, I am sure that Krystyna deliberately took the time and energy to make a tutorial about an apron she hates (and uses all the time) just so that everyone could burn up in their kitchen for Thanksgiving??? NOT!!! I thought we are too treat each other with respect and kindness on this board and that first post about safety was anything but kind...no one is forcing anyone else to make anything they don't want to or feels is unsafe??? I'm not sure I would ever venture to have the courage to put a tutorial on this board if it were received as this one has been??? Shame shame...

Krystyna, I think your tute was very well done...great pics and directions...cute fabrics!!! Thanks much!!

Thank you, Ronda!
Actually, this is what I usually wear for safety's sake, but it was too hard to do a tutorial on it

​Looks handy and would also be good for adult bibs.
