The Hepworth Apron is perfect for all creative endeavours – in the studio, garden or kitchen. Its design is functional and flattering with the option to add your own personal twist to the pockets or front band with a contrast fabric or embroidery. The cut is modern and flattering and does not require any major fit adjustments, so it is a good project for those new to dressmaking.
The pattern is named after sculptor and artist Barbara Hepworth who was born in Yorkshire. Her work is a constant source of inspiration and Jenni Smith grew up admiring the beautiful contours of her sculpted forms, and use of natural materials.
Fabric: The apron hangs beautifully in washed linen. Light to medium weight denim is good for a more hard-wearing option. Cottons are also suitable.
