Precision decorative stitching runs across the apron’s bodice and forms the “strings” for the ornament appliqués along the skirt. These sparkling embellishments augment the apron’s empire waist, piping accents, and wide sash ties.

Looking at something from different angles is a smart approach for most things in life. It’s also the idea behind the 3-in-1 Series we developed with our friends and sponsor, Janome America.

This apron is one of our most popular ever. The free downloadable pattern allows you to cut the main front and back of the apron as single pieces. We love the vintage style of the sweetheart neckline and mini-sweet pockets.

Facings along both sides of the bib are made into casings, then threaded through with an extra-long tie that acts a continuous drawstring, creating both the adjustable neck loop as well as the wraparound waist ties.

Pretty points on the bib and skirt give this signature S4H apron its name, but we also think it sparkles like a diamond thanks to all the beautiful details. There’s a free pattern download to help create perfect angles.

I’ve always loved overalls. When my kids were small, they were my rough-and-tumble choice for play clothes. But, they’re a personal favorite as well because they have such a comfy, loose fit.
