I made this for a swap... several months ago... but I totally fell in love with this apron!  I think it's my favorite sewn garment that I've made.



Ta-daa!  The main fabric was actually some kind of interior decorating fabric, and the trim is a slightly-sparkly corduroy.  And also, just so you know, corduroy makes a total mess all over your floor when you try to cut it.  I'm also totally OCD when it comes to lining up pockets...

I also embroidered a few of the flowers on the pocket.  My first real attempt at embroidery! 




Action-shot!  Modeled by my lovely former-roommate, Merliquin.



And a bonus bum-shot, to show the extra-long ties.



It was very well received by my swap partner... it was really hard for me to let go of it, though.  I fell in love with it!

SO cute. I'm disappointed I wasn't your partner in the swap, hahha! The embroidery is a nice touch, and I love the ruffle.

Thanks guys!  Cheesy  I was particularly proud of the ruffles... it was my first successful attempt at them.
