I have another new apron. This one was made from a reproduction 1930s print fabric I bought at my local quilting fabric store, Country Sewing Center.
Here is the before:
This apron had a bit of a weird construction technique with the straps that go from the front waistband over the shoulder to the back waistband. They are edged in double-fold bias tape and then lapped over the middle bodice piece and back horizontal strap and sewn from the right side. Since I had a little problem using pinking shears on lapped seams after I sewed them with the last apron, I pinked the edges before sewing this time around. Much smarter.
Here’s my new apron on Gene:
And from the back:
I’ve been using the other apron I made, and it is so cheerful. I like a LOT of color in my kitchen, so both my new aprons make me happy-happy.
Since I always leave my latest completed project on Gene the Dress Form until I need her for the next project, I won’t be using the new apron for a few days.
Up next, a tunic!

I like Gene. I think her and Miss Manne Q would get along well. How novel you made an apron that you use! I made an apron but I don’t use it. Weird. But, maybe not. 🙂
Today, I just finally looked through the Apronology magazine I bought a few months ago. Full of gorgeous aprons, many of which are way too nice to use. I totally understand!
