For Love and Bridal Showers, Part II

For those that I left wondering, the gift I was working on just about every night last week was this an apron for my college roommate (and now bride-to-be!), Christine. I was really going for the frilly, girly look of aprons found at Anthropologie, but my limited sewing know-how and even less sewing machine skill really held me back. In another world, this might have a little peplum skirt or some ruffly layers. Le sigh.

Anyway, I love the way the mismatching fabrics look and think they all pull together quite nicely. Like I said before, this was really hard. Maybe it's because I didn't use a pattern, but instead sort of half-traced an apron my sister made for me; or maybe because I didn't measure anything and was therefore worried before Christine tried it on that it would hang strangely or something, but this apron caused some serious anxiety before all was said and done. But in the end, I was so pleased with the finished product, I think I just may make a few more...but maybe in a month or two.
