Since my partner is MIA, I thought I'd post pictures of my apron to her since I worked so hard on it.
The bust is gathered and I made it so it ties in the front. All the bias binding is made by hand and top stitched with metallic gold thread. The back waistband is finished so no raw edges are shown. The colors are truest in the third picture. I wish I had an apron of my own to show you lovely ladies but, c'est la vie.
