Hi everyone! I haven't posted anything (except for some swaps in the last few months) that I've made in quite a while. I think since 2005 or 2006. Needless to say, I've made a few things since then, so here are three aprons I made a while ago but never posted.

The first was made for my cousin as a present. It's got princess seaming on the top. My favorite part is the pleating on the red waistband. Let me tell you, pleating took hours...and hours. I'm sure there was an easier way to do it, but I pinned, ironed, and sewed for quite a while. The neck strap has different buttonholes so you can adjust the fit with the giant shiny black button. The black skirt part has two pleats and there are two pockets. I was rushed to take pictures before she left, so the details are hard to see (sorry!).






The second has one giant pocket at the bottom, along with a sweet potato stain from Thanksgiving. This one ties at the neck. I had fun deciding which way to lay the stripes.




The last is my favorite, but again the photos don't show much detail (sorry). The bust is gathered for a better fit. There's tiny red polka dot ruffles along the waist and where the neck strap attaches, and an even tinier orange print fabric I made into piping. The pockets have flaps (same polka dot fabric) that are closed with pretty pins instead of buttons (this was made in my days where I still feared button holes Tongue )



C & C welcome as always! Thanks for looking.

Thank you! Hopefully if someone makes it from your wist, they'll leave out the sweet potato stain  Wink
