Today we are sharing the patterns to make your own set of His and Hers aprons! These apron patterns would be great to make a set for a bridal shower gift, a wedding present, or for your first home together as newlyweds. Of course, you could also use this template to make an apron for a friend’s birthday present, a beautiful Mother’s Day gift, or a nice treat for yourself too! Simply choose your favorite fabrics at your local craft store and follow the tutorial below for this easy and personalized sewing project.
To use the apron patterns, start by picking out your fabric. For each apron you will need 1 yard of washable 100% cotton home decor fabric. Be sure that the fabric is also 54 inches wide, which is the standard size for home decor fabric. After you have your fabric, put it through the wash to soften it up before you cut it. Next, you will need to cut your aprons down a bit. The women’s apron should be 36” long x 29” wide, and the men’s apron should be 36” long x 33” wide. Save this extra fabric to add pockets to your aprons after you are finished sewing them!
Now you can print the apron patterns PDF template below to help you make your apron. To cut the top half of the apron to create curved openings for your arms, fold the fabric in half length-wise and place it on a flat surface with the center fold crease to the right and the opening to the left. Both the women’s and men’s apron patterns should be placed 2 inches down from the top edge of the fabric (see photo tutorial below!). For the men’s apron, place the template 6.5 inches to the left of the center fold, and for the women’s apron, place the template 5.5 inches from the center fold. Cut along the curved line and then remove the excess fabric.
Follow the step-by-step photo tutorial below to guide you through completing your apron. You can also print the full materials list and instructions sheet with your template.

As of today, I cannot find the instructions or the templates for the aprons. I even tried the baby lock site. Are the pulled from the site? Thanks for your assistance.
Thanks for letting us know Sheryl! The National Serger website is no longer active so we will update our post with the information as soon as possible.
I wonder, how do you know my most favorite Apron pattern? 🙂 🙂
Yesterday morning I cut four of them and three hours later all 4 aprons were ready and passed the washing machine.
The prints: 1. teal cats on dark brown Background + teal will tape, bright red and pink Marimekko flowers + red twill tape, several green toned coffeecups on beige with green tape, bakery products and baker on black with light brown tape. Ironed this morning at 4.30h 🙁
I love that Marimekko pattern, please share pictures of your aprons!!! They all sounds lovely.
I have been trying and trying to print the directions for the His & Her Aprons, but it will not print. It just closes my Internet Explorer. Is there an issues with it?
I’m sorry you’re having trouble! Try downloading from a different browser (I use Chrome). 🙂
Going to have a go at this but can you explain what “serge” means .Not heard this term before and maybe it is American ?
Many thanks for all these fab projects
Serge refers to using a serger machine on the edges, I think it is called an overlock in other parts of the world 🙂 I hope that helps!!
I like the aprons. Your instructions are always so clear as well. However, I can’t seem to find the link for the PDF of the apron template. Help!
Thank you! There is a simple pattern on our site, but the materials list and detailed instructions can be found via the link in the post (http://nationalsergermonth.org/his-and-hers-aprons/) 🙂
