My sister has just moved to a house on the countryside, so I figured she needed something to protect her clothes while she's being all house-wifey and country-side-y (yes, this might just be my romantic picture of how her life there will actually be, but none the less, aprons are always useful). she, just liek me, is a big fan of Austen, so I decided to make it loosley based on the apron Elinor wears in the newer production of Sense and Sensibility.

So, enough said!
It's a very simple thing, and in all honesty simply thrown together really quickly. But I'm happy with the result none the less =)

The apron you made is perfect, simple, yet useful. It is great that you made it long, that way it works for pants as well as skirts and dresses. You are a very thoughtful sister. Cheesy

Aww, thank you both =) I really wanted to keep it clean and simple both in colour and lines, so it's mostly just stright lines in every piece of it.
I hope she'll like it too when she gets it ^^

well, I'd offer it to you, but it was kind of meant as a gift for my sister from the beginning =)

Ah, I love things that can be both very simple and yet elegantly beautiful at the same time. The fact that I also happen to adore Jane Austen, only makes it even better.

(Also, I must admit I thought this apron to be so lovely, I went on and looked up the other projects you have made in the past. And honestly, you are truly amazing and inspirational! Smiley)
