Sewing pattern apron cook is a must for everyone who likes to be in the kitchen and cook for their loved ones. Also ideal for sewing beginners. With the continuous tie, the apron can be adjusted to any size. The large kangaroo pocket stows the small but important things. With an average height, the apron is knee-length.

The pattern is available in one size.

Cook was sewn from a Christmas cotton fabric in this pattern.

Required material:

We recommend a cotton fabric.

Sizes 34-50 outer fabric 1.30 m 140cm wide


Cut out the pattern pieces from your outer fabric. Lay the fabric right side up. Lay the selvedges parallel to the center so that you can lay the front piece, front pocket and band in the fold. The pattern pieces should all be face up. Always align the grain arrow on all pieces in the same direction and parallel to the selvage of the fabric. Transfer all the notches from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk. Pinch the seam allowance in the fold of the fabric because this is always a center. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, etc. Transfer these either with chalk or pins.

You need from fabric:

  • 1x front part in break
  • 1x pocket at the front in the break
  • 2x band in break
  • 2x receipt tunnels in opposite directions

Sewing instructions:

You will need a sewing machine to sew this apron.

In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specially marked are 1 cm wide!
Happy sewing! 

Iron the side seams and the hem in twice and over. Pay attention to the seam allowances in the pattern. You also iron the upper fold of the front part twice and around, according to the pattern.

Iron the lower cut edge of the receipts once,…

... the openings of the kangaroo pocket double and around and the remaining seam allowances of the pocket once around. Pay attention to the seam allowances in the pattern and use the pocket template when ironing.

Then you stitch through the pocket openings 0.5 cm wide.

Your bag is prepared and you can stitch it onto the front part, just under the edge all around. Pay attention to the markings in the cut, which define the position of your bag.

Then also stitch the side seams and hems at 1 cm, as well as the upper fold in the front part, just under the edge.

Now come to the preparation of the slips, which function as a tunnel. The short stretches are taken twice

... and stitched 0.5 cm wide.

Then place the facings right sides together on the front piece and sew them together with 1cm. For curves, seam allowances are cut with scissors, so they can be ironed flat better.

Then the seam allowances are flat-stitched as far as you can get. This method not only makes the final ironing easier, but also means that the facing automatically lies inwards and does not roll out if it is not topstitched separately. Only the facing is stitched to the seam allowances. The stitching line can then only be seen from the wrong side of the fabric, but not from the right side.

Now stitch your folded and ironed slip onto the front piece, just under the edge.

Now we come to the preparation of the tape. This is cut twice and must be sewn together in the center back, right sides together.

Lay the band, right sides together, in the fold and sew it together with 1cm all the way around. Don't forget to leave a 2-3cm hole in the center for turning.

Iron the seam allowances apart. Use a stick to help you.

Also close the short ends,…

... fold them over to the left and secure their position with an auxiliary seam.

You overthrow the band through the hole in the middle, which you then sew up.

Pull your tie through the tunnel of the apron.
