bend-the-rules Sewing Part 3
One last thng I wanted to try from this book was the Apron. I seem to be seeing them around a lot lately and wanted to try my hand at one. I had purchased some cute fabric from a line called Elsie's Kitchen and made the Apron below. I adjusted the orginal pattern to minimize the amount of leftovers by using selvedge to selvedge widths for the skirt, trim and ties. The waist band is whatever I needed to fit the gathered skirt. I reinforced the waistband with some fancy waistband interfacing that I have had hanging around for ages and I think it worked well. I have also attached a closer look a the fabric. It seems so 50's ! Check out the lower right hand corner of the fabric picture ... what is that green thing with the red center being sliced up with a calorie count of 200?
