I made these for my niece for Chanukah. She loves playing in the kitchen and dressing up.

No close-ups, because I was messy with the stitching, truth be told! (I don't think she'll mind!) But the outline of the top is piped, and the middle sash is made of extra-wide bias tape with interfacing on the back to stiffen it up, and that's piped as well. The neck is adjustable. Quite by accident, the body is too ... the measurements I was given produced an absurdly long apron, so I picked up the bottom and basted it in place. So if the kid is really that tall, I can let it down. Or when she's older if she's not sick of cooking. Wink

Close-up of the hat:

Yep, her name's Leah! The hat was made using these instructions, which were surprisingly good! I made the circle a little smaller since she's little. It's adjustable with velcro in the back.

Fun! I'm excited, because we were having a tough time finding her a good gift until her mom suggested this, and it came out well! Plus, I've been waiting to put this fabric to good use, because I think it's super cute.
