This fabric called out to me one day and told me I needed an apron. A lined, pleated, top stitched apron. In patch work. No matter that I had never made one before. It didn’t matter that I didn’t have a pattern because I was not sure how to follow one anyway. I had the pattern in my head.
Do you think I cut these pockets wrong?
Do you this think I made the pockets too small?
Grab a plate to mark a curve in bigger pockets. Now I inherited my Mother-in Law’s sewing tools including her French curve ruler. But I never knew what you used it for until I saw it in a sewing video in YouTube, after I finished the apron!
Small pockets look good on the big pockets. Wait a minute, is this turning into a cargo apron?
Box pleats seemed easy enough
Magnetic jewelry clasps make a handy needle picker upper
Bottom is done
Sewing on the waist band and sash to the apron bib which my husband suggested I add. I top stitched around the bib and the skirt at the suggestion of Marie Elcin who is a fiber artist that I was taking a design class with at the Fleisher Art Memorial.
