|Looky what I made.|
I don't like it.
Well, I do. But not completely. The light blue fabric was so terribly thin that it needed a backing fabric, which made it poofy and heavier. Not that light and airy feeling I prefer in aprons. I also didn't have a coordinating bias tape, so it doesn't look "finished" to me, on the edge at least. (And the lack of bias tape contributed to the need for a back fabric.) But I was working with what I had on hand.
I also don't like the extra pointy points. Next time I will make them less sharp. And wider, to add more pleats. I was trying to mimic these aprons, which I think are adorable, but when I was drawing up the pattern I wasn't looking at the picture, so it was an experiment.
I do, however, stinkin' love this tea fabric. It was a fat quarter I had and it was just enough for two pockets and the short tie. Love. It. I'm really hoping they are selling this by the yard at the fabric store and I that I can get some more of it whenever I get around to buying fabric.
Not bad for a "Hey it's been awhile since I've dusted off the sewing machine, let's make up a pattern and try something."
