I got around to some sewing lately and finally got to work on a gift for a good friend of mine’s graduation. She graduated in May. Oops. What can I say? Life got a little busy!
It was determined that she wanted a cute apron based on one that we saw on the anthropologie website.
Always up for a challenge, I decided I would try to recreate it without a pattern. I tried a couple new techniques, most notably, shirring with elastic thread. Pretty dang cool effect for very little effort!
Overall I’m happy with how it turned out. I need to learn some more about working with fabric after it’s been shirred. . . or really, I should have made the top of the apron a different shape before it was shirred. And maybe made the straps a bit thinner. Next time around. . . I’m thinking about making this apron a tutorial, anyone interested? I’ll work out the kinks if I make it again as a tutorial.
