I had to do something for a final project in one of my classes and I'm interning at a regional theatre by my house this semester so i decided to ask if i could make something for one of the shows in the Festival of One Acts that they do annually.  They were thrilled cause they needed a waitress costume anyway and so they put me to work on that.  In my material searches I found a perfect material for the apron that is needed for a 50's-esque piece.  Since it was the smaller of the two projects (and I haven't created a complete piece from scratch since my camp years a bunch of years back) I decided to finish the apron first.  It turned out pretty well i feel.  I got to use my serger for the first time as well which was AWESOME.  It gives it such a different looking finish when you get to use it and it was REAL fun figuring out the different things it could do.  Only thing i wasn't happy about with the outcome was the interfacing i got for it.  I didnt have time to go to another store and the one i went to had only extra thick stuff so when the firont part of the waist band was bent over the final stiches were a bit bumpy but oh well.  Well, without further BABBLE from me here are the links to the pictures!!

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I love the fabric and the ruffles - it looks like you've still got the skills!  Great job!

Here's the pattern i used--wonderfully simple:)

I looked at a lot of apron patterns and i like the look of these the best for what i needed.  Although i do think that THESE are pretty awesome.  But I LOOOOOOOOVE vintage looks so i would Tongue

Oh and sugarpie.  HAVE A GREAT TIME WITH THE SERGER!!!! I have a babylock as well it is deff my favorite toy Tongue
