To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

« on: February 08, 2008 04:38:08 PM »

Everything about this apron was quick…how quickly I was asked to do it, how quickly I sewed it up, and how quickly I needed a Christmas present for my mom Smiley . So for it to look so nice, even close up, is both a testament to my improving sewing skills and how wonderfully easy the pattern is.

Fabric: Amy Butler Lotus Pond in yellow and Sun Dahlia in green
Inspiration: Montessori by Hand Emmeline Apron
Modifications: None
Difficulty: 6
Enjoyment Factor: 8

I really like how the bust part is gathered a bit to allow for a better fit in that area!  Most aprons are "flat" and not so flattering!  It is lovely!

I really like this one.  Actually I like all of your aprons.  You have a knack for picking out some of the most flattering styles.

It's beautiful. Smiley I especially like the fabric on the opposite side. Great job.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I love the fabric and the design!  And if you say it's easy, then there is hope for me yet!
