I'm thrilled to have finished my apron!
It was kind of a busy week with school winding down. Also, we finalized plans and signed a contract this week to have pool built! I'm really excited about that!
Finally, we had another huge haul of vintage patterns and fabric from an auction on Saturday. DH went and brought back TONS of stuff for me! I'm in the process of sorting and documenting it all and will post here about it soon.
But back to the project at hand, my apron. I love this apron. It's such a good feeling when something turns exactly how it was envisioned! The fabric really is what makes it. The one "embellishment" that I took the liberty of doing was the applique flowers on the pockets. After fusing them on, I used a very narrow zig zag over the top of the existing embroidery work. I chose this rather than a satin stitch because it matched the flower's stitching more closely.
Since I was home by myself, Doris said she'd gladly model the apron for me. Here she is in the kitchen. DH said, though, that she's kind of useless because she never cooks anything! Who needs to cook when you look as good as she does?
