Ok, ok just had to do one more today.





This is the apron I tried to describe the other day on MJ's. I decided to go ahead and make it because when I went to the mailbox today, there was an apron pattern in it! Squeeeee........Thanks to my farmgirl friend: AC done in Lovely Lousiana!! A asked me to tweek it a bit for her, so I did. I did my best on redraping the pattern. lengthened the ends and shortened the middle of the neck piece and put a sharper curve in it, then reversed the ovals and changed the angles slightly and narrowed it a bit through the bust and widened it at the bottom. Hope ya like it AC! This little beauty would be handy to have on hand for company because it fits my sewing manniquin which is about a size 8 to 10 and it fits me too, and I am a size hmmm.....around 18 or so. I really like this little gem. AC I'm going to get the redone pattern back to you in the mail in a day or so. Hope I did okay with it for you.

This is a very unique design. I saw it originally in an antique/consignment shop and AC saw at a garden show.

Hope ya'll like it!
