Louisa Ellis' favorite apron pattern

"Louisa took off her green gingham apron, disclosing a shorter one of pink and white print... [she] rose and took off her pink-and-white apron. Under that was still another - white linen with a little cambric edging on the bottom." - A New England Nun, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman

If you adore aprons as much as I do, and nearly as much as Louisa did, you'll love this apron pattern. The website has pictures to go along with the instructions, and you can adjust the length to your preference.

Here's mine - it was made long on purpose, to protect my pants from flour, dish water, etc.

Make as many as you wish. Wearing them all at once is up to you, but not recommended. :-)
