Pattern: BSC Perth Reversible Apron

Continuing the series of posts for tutorials and patterns from my pre-blogging days:

From September 2009: I made this apron pattern and instructions up for my Perth, Australia based BurdaStyle Sewing Club. We made one each at our second meeting on September 12th. It was a huge success and a lot of fun so I thought I would post it for others to give it a go 🙂


It is a very basic pattern designed not to scare off beginners and has huge potential for personalisation and modification.


You need two contrasting fabrics. For a heavy-duty cooking/gardening apron I suggest heavy cotton/drill/canvas or demin.

For a more lighter-weight baking/craft apron then light-weight printed cotton is fine.

Fabric requirements are given in the tutorial pdf download below.


Please download the pattern here: BSC Perth Reversible Apron Pattern Print at Home – it is an A4 tiled pdf file.

Method (to the madness):

Please see download: Reversible Apron Tutorial

You can make your aprons out of other thrifted items too, one of the girls used an old flour bag to dress up some red gingham – very cool!

And here some of us are in our (mostly finished) aprons 🙂

Enjoy! And if you have any questions please feel free to comment below 🙂
