I just finished this apron.  It's a Christmas present for either my sister or my sister-in-law.  I have enough fabric, so I think I'm going to make another one, so I can give one to each girl.

Anyways, I based it off this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129867.0 but made it with a halter top, changed the sides and left off the pockets.  This is the first time I've made something without a pattern.

The top is a bit big on me, but both girls are a bit bustier than I am, so I think it's ok.

That's so cute.  The halter top really gives it something that is unique and looks sophisticated than a typical apron.  Well done!

That's adorable!  Now you can totally revel in the fact that Anthropologie would sell an apron not nearly as cute as that for 50 bucks. Wink

I guess those anthropologie aprons do have a similar top.  I'm excited that I made mine without seeing their one first. Smiley  ($50?!?  I can't believe how much some people will pay for their stuff!)

Oh, and I got the fabric from Ikea.

Hi, Cinnamon! Wow, you have so many talents. This apron is cute! You should make one for yourself!

You could also modify it into a summer dress with an asymetrical hem, too!  Smiley

Hi Deanna,

www.wists.com is an site where you can make your own wish list from any picture/item on the internet (doesn't really work with flash sites, though.)  A lot of craftsters use them for swaps, to give their partners ideas.  It's a pretty cool concept. 

I think I might make an apron for myself once Christmas is over.  I should have enough fabric.  This pattern only takes about a yard (of the wide fabric anyways). 

I really appreciate the compliments Smiley.  I feel like such a bumbling novice when I sew Tongue.  My mom taught me when I was little, but I never really made anything more complex than jammies before.
