Some good apron pattern styles include half, pleated, and gathering aprons; French Country and Halloween aprons; tea towel and linen aprons; and quilted and pinup aprons. Useful patterns for making aprons are available on SewingSupport.com as of 2015. The site offers over 190 different designs and accompanying tutorials.
Supplies to make a pattern include drafting paper, curves, a ruler, scissors and notchers. To create an apron pattern from scratch, determine the basic shape and fabric. Necessary measurements include where the apron sits on the waist or hips, how far it wraps around the body and how far down the leg it extends.
