I'm going to be buying fabric soon to make this apron-- it's perfect for my Renaissance Faire costume (that way I don't have a try to make a bodice or a corset!!). I was wondering if anyone had a estimate of how many yards I'll need? I always end up with WAY too much.

That depends on the width of the fabric. I think i used a bit less than about 2,5 meters fabrics for mine though, if that is any help. =)

It did, thanks! I'm going to be making it today, and I'll post a picture for you when it's done-- I can only work during the baby's nap time, otherwise he tries to press the pedal for my machine!

Here it is! I made a few adjustments-- instead of bustling the fabric at the bottom of the front I made a pleat, and the back straps weren't long enough for me to sew them to the back, so I just tied them behind my neck. I might try to work it out later, but baby woke up just as I got done!

I also haven't added the pockets yet, I'm thinking of making them white. Any thoughts on that? Would it be appropriate for the costume, or should I leave them blue as well?

The skirt underneath I made for the Renaissance festival last year, and I think it looks great!! Thank you so much for your tutorial! It was very easy to follow.

Oh my, I hadn't seen these replies untill now!
That is a beautiful apron Seraphim! I am sure by now you will have added my pockets, but had I seen this earlier I would have said white sounds charming =)

I am getting this fuzzy warm feeling inside. It's so wonderful to see all your projects! Lots of love to you guys <3

(And Sarah: i am of course really curious about your work as well!)
