I love aprons. Old, new, tattered, half, full, ruffles….you name it, I love aprons. They are inherently feminine and these days for more than just the kitchen.
In my continuing quest for quick completions, I finished these 2 aprons this weekend.
First is from the Shop Girl (and boy) pattern by Fabritopia.
The pattern does give the option of lining the apron, but I didn’t. I am sure if I had made this in cooler weather, I probably would have.
I had hoped to use this for the mommy & me apron class, but the bias ironing time for 2 aprons puts it out of reach for an afternoon class. I think using the prepackaged would take so much away from this design. Soooo…we are going to make this one!
I love this pattern. You can go real retro with calicos or fun & flirty with novelty prints like this Robert Kaufman fabric. I think next time, I will opt for a wider band. The pattern called for twill tape, but I liked having the band/straps match.
The full line of Sweetwater’s Little Sprout patterns are on the way. I can’t wait to try them all!
