Now that Halloween is behind us, I’m SO ready for other projects that don’t include costumes and candy. Unless of course you count aprons as costumes, then I’m all over it!
In fact, I was so excited to start on my aprons that I stayed up until 2am making up some patterns I’m playing with trying to find cute styles. This picture is of one that I have been calling the “shapely” apron. Jspin thinks it looks like a dress right now, but that’s sort of the idea. Don’t mind my concentrated look in the picture. It was really late and making the material look how I wanted was tricky.
I purchased this material shortly after this post, and after getting inspired looking at aprons at boutiques this last month, I’m finally getting started! (sorry to the four of you who have been waiting) It hasn’t been quite six months yet, so I don’t feel like a complete loser. . .yet!
What would help me now is to get some reader feedback here. Do you ever wear aprons? Do you prefer full or half ones? Pockets or no pockets? Do you wear them strictly for cooking? Would a crafting apron be handy?
I’m having a lot of fun with the patterns and can’t wait to see how these turn out. Here are some apron pictures I’m using for inspiration:
Love to hear what you all think!
