I've been in need of a decent, high level of coverage apron for some time and within the same week I spotted this tutorial:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417397.0#axzz2MNMBOpxv

and was given two massive trashbags full of fabric, one of the bags was almost entirely filled with yard upon yard of cotton ticking.
Ticking is used for feather pillows and is incredibly hard wearing, completely washable and is also generally preshrunk. I'm hoping this follows the trend lol.

I needed a decent covering apron because I'm a mucky pup. I cook a lot, make my own bread every other day and tend to rub my dirty hands down my sides. I garden a lot, I kneel in mud, and among other things I get all manner of things caught on my boobs.

I have a much more padded body than lelyonna who wrote the tutorial for her beautiful apron, so mine had some darts put at the boob and I dropped the waist a bit.

anyway, on with the pics (taken by my 7 year old on my DSLR Cheesy)

spinning!!! it has such a satisfying spin!!! it drapes surprisingly nicely for a heavy cotton, and although I've not tried it over trousers, I assume it'll work as well lol.



front, by the way, all of the hems are rolled and most of the seams are flat fell..... yeah. improving my skills.



back: I cross my shoulder straps and decided to button them rather than having them fixed at the side. also, I got to use my button hole thing on the sewing machine which is AWESOME. the one on my old machine was convoluted and involved a lot of mathematics to calculate sizes, widths etc, this one's damn near automatic. pop in the button you want to use at the end, fit the foot properly and the machine does the rest!!!!




so, yeah. that's me. short, dumpy and now clean Cheesy

Very nice.  Love that you included a twirl shot.  Because, seriously, what good is skirt-like apparel if it doesn't flare properly when you twirl?  Wink

You did a great job on the apron. The fabric is a good choice for this type of apron. Lately when I cook aprons are one of the first things I grab. Save the clothes! Smiley

This is beautiful and you look wonderful in it.  It sort of makes me want to start singing songs from The Sound of Music.   Cheesy

Omg, i read this post without realising what it was first. Then i went "hrm... that design seem familiar..." than i saw my name, laughed and felt like i ought to gain some weight so as not get injured as much. Once that has settled, i just really enjoyed your design =) love the stripes and the way you've handled them!
