I really love sewing, and I really love aprons, so this was a fun project for me! Best of all, I was making it for a dear friend's birthday present, so it was all the more a pleasure.
The pattern is a McCall's. I was going to make the frilly view B, but wasn't sure she would like it. I settled on view C, but added some lace to make it feminine, just right for my friend.
I used fabric that is a bit heavy, but not as heavy as denim. Perfect for a sturdy apron!
This was my first attempt to make bias tape, and - wow - that is a lot of folding and pressing! It was so worth it. I am really pleased with the nice finished edges. But I'm seriously thinking of buying a bias tape maker, folks.
The lace was super-easy to add in. I like this apron so much, I'm thinking of making one for myself.
...After the bias tape maker arrives. ;o)
