Maven Patterns The Maria Wrap Apron

At last…an action shot of The Maria Wrap Apron in her natural surroundings.

She was named after my very lovely and creative friend Maria, who is a textile artist – you can see her work here. The apron was created following a conversation with Maria and another friend Miss Kitty about garments that are missing from our lives, a Maker’s apron was needed for creating and for messy print work in the Design Studio. That conversation grew and evolved and now, as a result, I’m naming all of my patterns after the very inspiring ladies I’ve been lucky to meet along my journey,  but I’ll tell you more about them another day.

This is the full back pinafore dress version (version B), with a tie fastening on the side. You’ll need to wear something under her – perhaps leggings, I’m quite keen on wearing her with my jeans. She looks great with a skinny t-shirt underneath – the styling makes her quite low on the sides so that is more of a necessity than a suggestion!

So, just a little recap …The Maria wrap Apron by Maven Patterns. Perfect for a day in the studio, as a dress, she is great for a day of (fabric) shopping, perfect as a practical apron for one’s domestic duties. And, honestly, there really isn’t a better apron to wear while staring wistfully at the kitchen wall…

The Maria Wrap Apron PDF sewing pattern

I’m very excited to announce the first PDF sewing pattern, The Maria Wrap Apron by Maven Patterns, is now available for automatic download in the SHOP.

She has a wrap over back for an easy fit or the option to have a full back under-wrap with a side tie fastening to wear as a pinafore dress. She’s been very well received so far, and I’m looking forward to seeing a little army of creative apron wearing women! The Maria Wrap Apron comes with full illustrated Maker Instructions, cutting guides and a multi-sized pattern in sizes SMALL, MEDIUM and LARGE.

EDITED TO ADD: We now have paper pattern too!
