Sewing Pattern Hack: New Looks for the Indygo Junction Easy-On Apron

July 24, 2019

One apron. So many options.

The Indygo Junction Easy-On Apron is a go-to apron pattern because of its versatility. Recently, the folks at Sew4Home.com used it as the basis for this look, giving it a few fun updates of their own. They added a new lining, created a new pocket pattern, trimmed it in rick rack and altered the shoulder straps. Learn more about these creative hacks and get inspired to mash up patterns that are on your sewing table.


Take a look at the Easy-On Apron from Indygo Junction. It’s a classic shape that lends itself to so many looks – wear it paired with jeans or leggings, as a bathing suit cover-up and of course, in the kitchen. The pretty pink fabrics they chose make it lovely for summer.

The full lining is really impressive and we love the peek-a-boo stripes. The fit and hang of the apron is still perfect.

The rick rack detailing is very sweet. It was added to the side openings, straps and front pocket flaps. Adding embellishments like rick rack is a great way to add personal flair and personality to sewing projects. (Not to mention a bright pop of color.)

Dritz mini anorak snaps were added at the straps, making it even easier to take the apron on and off.

We also had our hand at mashing up the Easy-On apron.

We opted for a super clean look – with Dritz rectangle rings at both straps being the key hack we made to this pattern.

We hope you like both looks, and that you’ve got some ideas for how you might change-up your next sewing pattern. Remember that both Indygo Junction and Sew4Home are fabulous resources for sewing supplies, patterns and inspiration.
