Apron Pattern

I went shopping yesterday looking for apron patterns that I could use for aprons to sell on etsy. The four corner apron that I am so fond of is copyrighted with no authorization to sell on etsy or ebay. I am able to sell them at boutiques or privately with their permission. After looking at a variety of patterns and seeing nothing that caught my fancy. I can home and began drafting some patterns for half aprons with ruffles. So far I've made two variations. The same concepts could be used for making little girl's ruffled skirts.

The pink and lime green dotted apron is made from what I call a double layer. Three tiers show but it is actually four tiers with one attached to the bottom of the upper tier. May sound complicated but it really isn't.

The green and turquoise apron is a triple tier apron. The fabric is called Playing in Spotzville. I put bias binding (a retro look) on the bottom hemline.

I will be listing these on etsy later today.
