Above is the website.

Be sure to visit the website. The woman...who drafts the patterns...is brilliant! I am looking forward to starting some of these aprons!! She has lots of photos on her site of dresses and other goodies as well as sewing tutorials for her patterns.

I love the A-line structure of this apron with the large pockets and the back of the apron is wonderful!!

I also just found out yesterday that one of my daughter's is going to be Dolly Madison at school and needs a costume in a few weeks.....so.......more sewing after Kim's handfasting dress is done!! And it almost is!!!!

Georgann your sewing is as wonderful as your writing! Miss you! Hope all is well.

Hi Sheri,
Sewing is the only way I can cope right now. My head has been spinning. Sorry I haven't been at the writing group, but my heart is still breaking and I can find little solace. Thanks for stopping by. I'm really swamped at the moment, but should be a little more open next week.

i love this patterna nd it was really fun to make. This is the apron I traded with nancy Jo, and also made one for the Cass County Fair last year. Got a blue ribbon!

I'll be sending you some patterns. When is her Dolly gig?

auntgeorge said...

Tasha that is so good to know!! I have been wanting this one for a long time. A blue ribbon? Cool deal!! Do you still have that apron? Would love to see it.

Oooo Kim that would be great! Her gig is June 12. I found a scruptious pale peach colored cotton to do her dolly dress in. Got it at the Wal-Mart for $1 per yard, so of course I bought the whole bolt and will do the edwardian apron from it too with peach colored embroidery on it!!

Gotta run....sewing tonight!

I still use it and love it. I made Nancy Jo's with longer ties. I like it better with longer ties and when I make the next one, it will have them as well. I think it looks a little prettier.
