Fabric selection was limited to what I had within the house. I dismantled my Halloween costume from last year, which started out life as a sheet.
I used this tutorial. Because like most young women, I’ve dreamed of owning a Regency style apron since high school….roughly corresponding with the release of this version of Sense and Sensibility. Not a coincidence.
This whole project was a hack job. I really meant for it to be just a practice piece to make sure it fits and works well for me. As such I gave myself permission to cut as many corners as possible. A professional seamstress would be horrified. Even the somewhat fastidious home sewist would be aghast. What can I say? Frankly, it was either fast and dirty or not at all and this is a very useful garment for me.
I should have gotten proper pictures of the back and all, but really my highest priority in the moment was to get my parsley and basil in the ground. The straps cross in the back, which I love. It’s comfortably supportive. I do not like the type of apron that just goes around the neck.
What have you been working on?
