New Apron Work in Progress





I found instructions for a vintage pattern, similar to the one Kathie makes. I love the assymetrical cutting of this apron and have been wanting to try one. Well...of course, I cant stop with the simple instructions. I had to go and do patchwork type piecing...the top fabric is printed patchwork, but I put the bottom parts in and added the rick rack and then made it reversible so you could see a pretty ruffle below the pumpkin colored fabric. I'm not done with this one yet...I'm really tired today, didn't sleep much last night. Anyway, here it is. Needs pockets and a waistband and the layers sewn together, but hopefully you can get an idea of my first apron that I've made in a while. I love working with Autumn colors. It is my favorite time of year. I'm thinking of appliqued leaves on the pumpkin colored part...but don't know if I am that ambitious! LOL

Thanks Jess....not as drop dead gorgeous as Bev's right now....I'm a little out of practice. I think it will finish out rather nice though. I've got so many of them rolling around in my head right now. I've been collecting vintage linen tea towels now for a specific apron that is in my head.........Well, gotta make dinner. Thanks, and looking forward to seeing your new/old pram!!

I can almost smell the falling leaves and taste the apple cider! Isn't that a pretty apron -- quite an interesting construction. It's like Project Runway for Apronistas.
I like it!
