We’re so excited to bring you the Cobbler Dress and Set! This design is based on ’50s cobbler aprons: tunic-style garments with big pockets that were cinched at the waist with a tie. Usually made in cheerful cottons and worn for housework and other domestic activities, the cobbler apron looked fabulous while being comfortable and functional. You know we love to bring you versatility, so we gave this pattern so many options it’s practically a wardrobe on its own! The dress version is surprisingly chic while being incredibly comfy and flattering (if you’re a Popover Dress fan, then this is a must-make). Don’t forget to add the ruffle to the front princess seams for a touch of ’40s fab! Or make the top-length version and pair it with the included capri pants. These pants have a flat front and back elastic waistband so they look polished enough to wear on their own, but are comfy enough to lounge or work in. Choose from an adorable tie leg or just a simple slit at the hem. Either way, this set will have you feeling like a domestic goddess. Add a matching oven mitt (from our free pattern on the Charm site) to complete the look! Our skill of the month is bias binding, so make sure to watch the video to learn how to sew this simple and polished edge finish.
