Here is a brand new apron made for a friend of mine. My friend came to me with an apron problem, and needed some help solving it. She has lots of cute aprons at home, but none of them are giving her the coverage she needs. You know me, I love an apron challenge, so I was so excited to work on this project!
While searching the internet, my friend came across this apron here. She thought this might be the perfect design to give her the functionality that she needed. We both thought that apron was amazing. However, my friend decided that she wanted a bit more shape and definition in her apron design.
After trading nearly 20 emails back and forth, we worked together to create this apron here. And I think we came up with the perfect solution:
As you can see, the apron has a very high neckline and wide shoulder line. This will help give her the coverage that she needs. This apron is also a workhorse apron. All pockets, straps and seams are TRIPLE reinforced. This apron, while beautiful, will stand up to little children tugging on the straps and as many washings and drying as she can put it through!
My friend gave me almost complete reign on choosing and coordinating the fabric. (Which is a lot of fun for me!) She told me that her favorite color is red and that she also likes owls and birds. I thought that this fabric would be perfect for her. I choose this fabric because it is a very modern fabric and color scheme. I think that gives a new take on the nostalgic design of the apron.
The back is very cool if I do say so myself! ;) It has two straps that come down and attach to the waste. This will help hold the apron top in place so that it won't ride down, up, or slip. (Another problem she was having with her other aprons.) As you can see, the apron also gives plenty of coverage to keep the sides of her pants clean while working in the garden and kitchen.
Well, thanks for looking!
