Pretty, but not quite perfect.
I love the prints,



 
I can accept my sewing (still learning),

 
but the solid cotton colour is slightly off.






I forgot to take a shot that shows both sides - the apron is reversible.

I may remake this apron (LOVE the pattern!) with same prints but with a different coordinating solid (cream or white maybe?), but for now my friend J has commissioned me to make one for her.  The fabrics she chose are gorgeous and check my blog in the next little bit to see the entire detailed process!

Cheers!
Thanks for looking!

I think that the contrast band is awesome -- yes, it's darker than the print, but it's still in the same colour scheme, so it looks wonderful, to my eyes. The colour scheme looks kind of pale, this kicks it up a notch.  Very adorable apron! I love the gathering in the bust, as well.

That turned out great!  I love the look of the pattern, and the fabrics you chose work really well together.  I can't wait to see the next one!

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

Wow the Apron came out wonderfully!!! Love it!  I like the striped on the back as the accent.  Very nice.

One thing though, the prints you used are actually Joel Dewberry from the Chestnut Hill collection or at least the medallion print is http://www.joeldewberry.com/ChestnutHill.html

I only mention it because I am (1) a fabric junkie (2) a lover of Joel Dewberry fabrics (I like Amy B. too of course) and think everyone should know about them.  In fact...Have you seen his new collection coming out (http://www.joeldewberry.com/GinsengIndex.html)!!  It is Fabulous!

Thank you for all the kind comments!

Mozilla - you're totally right!  thanks for the 411.... i assumed it was amy b. b/c it was grouped together on display at the fabric store. and also thanks for the links... i always like discovering new and cool fabrics online.

thanks again!
