sewing isn't my preferred craft so I need something simple! Plus making these with the kids! I can make a basic A line dress, put in a zipper etc but that's as far as I go. Knitting/crochet is more my thing.

 

I need aprons for my kids who are 10, 8 and 5. I'm after something very simple and was just going to go to IKEA for fabric. (fabric stores plus 3 kids? Not always awesome!)

 

oh eta. My oldest is a boy, but tbh he might be ok with something on the frilly side. OTOH my daughters will NOT be. So needs to be very plain and simple.

 

I don't mind paying to print off a pattern. I'm not in the US so it needs to be something I can download.

 

I'm not quite so keen on sizing up a pattern for myself. OTOH my kids are quite slight so there's a possibility of lengthening a pattern for younger kids?

 

Has anyone got any good links? 

 

TIA
