Little girls love to join hands with their mothers while cooking. Add some extra flavor to those fun times by sewing these matching ruffly girly aprons for you and your little one.
She would love to wear a matching one with you while learning her cooking skills. Moreover, these aprons can render those special moments colorful and joyous. They are easy to sew and can be done with your leftover scraps of fabric.

Mommy and Me Apron Sewing Pattern
- Medium-weight cotton fabric for the apron body- 1/3- 1/2 yard, depending upon the size you are making
- Medium weight cotton fabric in four contrasting colors for the apron ruffles- measurements given in table-2 below (you can also use fat quarters or your leftover fabric scraps).
- Medium weight cotton fabric for the apron ties- measurement is given in table-2 below.
- Sewing Notions.
Approximate Finished Measurements.
All the fabrics used here are of 44/ 45 inches width.
The fabrics shown here are only for illustration purposes and as such may vary from the original.
The seam allowance is 3/8 -inch unless otherwise specified.
I suggest you read the entire pattern once before starting to get a general idea.
All seams are to be finished by zigzag or serger.
In the table below, “l” stands for the length and “w” stands for the width of the fabric piece to be cut.
1) The ruffle pieces are to be cut from the four different fabrics.
2) For all ages, you will need to join two pieces for the tie and for teens/adults you will need to join two pieces for the ruffle.
First, let’s finish the edges of the apron body.
We move on to the ruffles.
Repeat the steps with the other three ruffle pieces.
Next, let’s gather the ruffles. For that, we need to turn the upper thread tension of the machine to zero and change the stitch length to the longest.
You will get your ruffles like this. I have kept them in the order I like to place them on the apron.
Let’s attach the ruffles to the apron body.
We first start with the lower-most ruffle.
Next, we move on to the ties.
