i hope this is the right place to post this Smiley

i pretty much gave up on patterns this weekend. they NEVER work the way they're supposed to and the instructions are designed to drive you to insanity. i made the whole thing saturday, realized that the skirt part was WAY too big (even with it gathered it was the size of a generous circle skirt) and the bib was WAY too small (maybe it was my boobs, but it only covered about a fourth of my top). so sunday i became best friends with my seam ripper and took the whole thing apart. the pattern was mccalls m4958 and had the skirt in three separate parts. i took off 2/3 and it was perfect. i'm going to use one of the third piece to make the bib, but i don't feel like it right now. i'm just happy i have a half-apron!

the fabric pattern is so freaking cute that i had to do something with it. i have a whole lot of fabric left over....maybe i'll make matching potholders and reusable menstrual pads with it!

my chair modeling the apron....chairs make beautiful models....and my beautiful sewing machine, edna, in the background. i love her.

the fun fabric that reminds me of lemonade and jelly shoes

thanks for lookin'  Wink
