Think Big

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!

Add the necessary inches to the middle of the apron prior to cutting.

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!

  1. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
