I dreamed an apron pattern last night, but...


When I cut it out and was ready to sew it together, my daugher handed me some fabric that she has been waiting for me to sew into a dress for her.....so.....as you can see, my daughter now has her funky dress! She picked out the fabric and pattern and then together, we altered it and made an assymetrical neckline with a nice little strappy finish! She added the long neck or hair scarf to the outfit. I used black piping around the neck and 1/4" double fold bias tape at the sleeves. She hates facings....so do I, that is why we opted to leave out the facings and use the bias tape and piping.

She is my little fashionista. I love this fabric it is a breezy rayon crepe.

I will be sewing up my new apon tonight I hope. It is a really cool pattern that I made....super easy and hopefully feminine.

Have a fabulous day....

Here is a link to modest clothing patterns. I found a pattern similar to the nursing apron you mentioned in the Clothing like Mary site.
