I do believe I’m developing somewhat of a cult following among those looking for large/tall/plus size aprons! It helps that I’m surrounded by models in the over six foot category (male AND female). Even my grandkids are destined to be tall – when they’re 2, they wear Sz 4. When they’re 6, they wear 8s. I was already making men’s aprons in larger sizes (because of those models I told you about.)
Early on, I overheard a couple of ladies at a craft fair bemoaning the lack of cute aprons for larger ladies – AHA! I said – and proceeded to make several plus size aprons. The well endowed women always want to make sure the apron covers the ‘girls’ – lol! I’m working on it – everyone should have an apron that fits and that they love! I have a wonderful pattern from Indygo Junction
that I can easily adjust to add additional inches. It’s billed as a one-size and it does fit many sizes, except those with the ‘big girls’!! But, by simply adding a few necessary inches when I’m cutting it, the same wonderful apron can fit the girls with the big bazooms!
I do have some patterns that will make up to a 2xl and they’re great, too. We need to cover those girls – what do they say? ‘Never trust a skinny cook”???
I’ve recently added some even larger ladies’ aprons – these cover the 2X-5X sizes. They’re mostly simple butcher style patterns, some with embellishments to give them something extra. And, now that I have my new best friend, Gertrude (my dressform) to model, I’ll be able to experiment with modifying some other patterns for the plus size crowd!
