The Perfect DIY Gift for a Little Girl: Peter Rabbit Ruffle Apron Sewing Pattern Review

Updated: Jan 14

A ruffled apron has been on my mind for the longest time, so when I revied this adorable fabric from The Craft Cotton Company, I knew it was the right one for the job! Peter Rabbit is a classic character and these prints that feature veggies and plants too make it perfect for kitchen sewing projects.

There are so many lovely apron patterns available, but the one I used for this project is the ‘Little Girls Ruffle Apron’ by The Freckled Pear whose patterns are available from Etsy (and is very reasonably priced!)

Seller’s description-

“Whether it’s for your own little kitchen helper, your grand-daughter or for a unique gift idea-this apron, handmade with love, is a great way for that special girl to look simply adorable while baking up a batch of cookies. The apron skirt is made up of three fun, flouncy ruffles anchored to a backing. The bodice is fully lined. The neck and waist ties are double-sided and topstitched to lay flat after laundering. The ties can be adjusted as she grows and are plenty long for tying in a nice bow. All seams are finished with no raw edges so the apron will hold up well for lots of fun times in the kitchen.”

Sewing experience level: advanced beginner to intermediate seamstress

Using contrasting fabrics works well with this style of apron and makes the ruffles and ties really stand out. I had just under a metre of these 2 fabrics which was plenty to make the apron as well as the lining. I used some scrap pieces of the sage green cotton for Easter Bunny Headbands which I have a tutorial for here

The pattern instructions were clear to follow with illustrations and can be made in sizes ranging from age 3 up to age 10. I made mine up in a size 5-6 so there’s plenty of growing room!

This is the ultimate, girly, cottagecore-style apron and definitely gets me in to mood to bake this Spring. My mission now is to make one in adults’ size one to match!
