Sew4Home shows how to make a rustic apron with Scandinavian styling. It has a squared shape, with small pleats above and below the waist to add shaping. The neck strap is adjustable with a D-ring. The skirt has a row of pockets to hold utensils. The stripes on the fabric are made with rows of decorative machine stitches. Most newer sewing machines have plenty of decorative stitches to choose from. Go to Sew4Home for the how-to.
