Cut out fabric.. I measured her across her chest to cut the top, then I just 'guessed' to cut out the armpits.
If I remember, I will go find it and put the measurements on here.
Fold up edges on bottom and sides, then fold them again and pin tight (don't iron or fabric will melt)
Don't fold armpits or top, that is where the ribbon goes.If you have a guide foot on your sewing machine, this step is a lot easier! Be slow and careful if you don't.
It's time to pick out your ribbon, cut it to the length of the top and sew it on.
I chose a grosgrain ribbon, because it's usually a little more durable.
I sewed a double line, just for looks, you certainly don't have to.
Leave 12 to 14 inches of ribbon for tie back, then pin it up the armpit, leave a loop for head to slip through, then back down the other armpit. I also did a double stitch here, just for looks.
Pockets were a total guess as well, I cut a square that seemed to fit in nice and looked proportionate.
I took the top square and tripled it's width for the lower pocket.
Cut & fold the ribbon on to pocket, pin it down and sew it on, then fold in sides and bottom, pin and sew themLastly, pin your pockets on apron where you want them and sew them on, your done! Pretty easy!
