I made a reversible Apron with pockets... it is the first with pockets. I had my roomie model it for me, what a great sport! He really liked the pockets and the apron wrapped around him so while he was doing dishes he wouldn't worry about getting his shirt wet. LOL I think the pattern fits him.  Grin I think next time I will be a little more observant when it comes to material patterns. I was going for cleaning and gardening...

Cute apron; I love the fabric on the pockets.  Also, props to your roomie for getting in touch with his domestic self.   Grin

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

He will make a lucky women proud! I was so surprised that he was so willing to do this for me. My husband said that the colors make his skin pale. So I am trying to find something a little more fitting. LOL

I just made about 5 of these exact aprons. I got the pattern from Simple Sewing by Lotta Jansdotter. Love the book. There are some really cool ideas in it.

I love this pattern too. It took me only an hour per apron to make. I gave them out as gifts for Christmas. Everyone loved them! I took them to my work (dental office) to show the front desk girl. A patient actually saw them too. They loved them! The patient wanted the name of the book to make some of the aprons for a charity sale. Very cool idea.

I wish I had taken pics. I got some really neat scrap fabric that was kind of retro.

Good job on the apron, OP! Don't ya just love the curvey fit?
