Sometimes little hands have a hard time with doll clothes. I designed this doll apron to make it not only easy to construct but hopefully easy for little hands to dress up their dolls on their own!
STEP 7 – attaching the waistband loop – Place the 3″ piece of elastic on the top side of the front of the apron and just below one of the waist corners (see the picture below). Secure just 1 END in place using the same method as instructed above.
STEP 8: Place the second BODY of Apron piece on top of the other with right sides together. Pin together on 3 sides (see photo below).
Sew the apron together on the 3 pinned sides and stop as directed below.
STEP 9: Lift the top Apron piece and find the “loose” end of the waistband elastic.
Continue sewing down the length of the apron leaving the bottom hemline open.
STEP 10: Turn the apron right side out and press. Fold the bottom hemline under about 1/4″ – 1/2″ and press.
STEP 11: You can simply stitch the bottom hemline closed OR you can add a fun ruffle!
Fold the tulle so it has many layers and cut a strip about 2″ wide (fold it many times or just a few. The fullness depends on the look you want! ) Don’t worry about being exact with the width, we will do a trim later.
