My daughter is getting a bunch of dress up stuff for Christmas, so I got an early start on some since I'll be making them and don't want to keep it all till the night before and drive myself crazy.
I was looking for a cute apron pattern (but not girly since my son would be using it too) that would work on a toddler. But I mostly found child ones that seemed sized for a 10 year old or older. So I just made my own sizing, but used this tutorial. (The tutorial is a PDF, so you have to scroll down the right side and find the button for "classic apron" tutorial since I can't link directly to it) I picked this one cause it had "D rings" on the neck strap, and I liked the polished look it gave. And I absolutely love this fabric - I found it at JoAnns.
chef's hat was tricky to make since I didn't want to put bias tape around the edge. I just doubled the height of the band and folded it in half to get the clean edge to it. Other than that, I followed the tutorial on that one pretty close.
