Here is a digital pattern for a split-leg potters apron for men and women. The pattern is a 'one-size-fits-all' pattern but I have indicated in the pattern how you can easily make it wider or longer.
In the PDF files I describe step by step how to sew your own apron guided by drawings and photos. Also for a beginner in sewing, the instructions are simple to follow.
*** The pattern is regularly revised when I receive constructive feedback from helpful customers.
The PDF files consist of * the pattern for a cross back, split-leg apron, or also called potters apron, with a square neck line, as seen in the photos * a read me file in English * and the sewing instructions in English
The measurements of the apron are * hip circumference of 92 cm / 36 inches * the length is around 90 cm / 35 inches from shoulder to hem
The fit is loose and easy and the apron falls open on the back. If you have doubts about the hip circumference of 92 cm / 36", please note that when the apron is open on the back, it is more comfortable to work, bend, etc than when the back overlaps a lot.
The maximum dimensions of fabric you will need to make the apron is 140 wide x 120 long cm / 55" wide by 47" long. If you want to change the dimensions, you will need more fabric.
The pattern can be printed on simple A4 format paper or US letter size, taped together and then you can cut out. ***Please note to print page 7 of the pattern first! It contains the test square to see if the pattern is printed in the actual size.
PDF files can be read with the free software Adobe Acrobat Reader, often already installed on computers but if not, safe to download from the internet.
If you have any questions, before or after downloading the files, you can always contact me.

In 2015 I created Bloem Linen making linen aprons. In the following years I slowly added linen clothing and nightwear to my brand. Regularly I received messages from customers asking if I would sell my sewing patterns. And these demands lead to plunging into learning how to turn my paper sewing patterns into downloadable files.
I hope you enjoy my always growing list of patterns. If you have questions, remarks, suggestions or see faults in my patterns, please don't hesitate to write me, I am always open to improve my patterns.
Thank you, Marion
