This is my "Pie Making Apron" for this month's Tie One On. (There's also a pie, of course! I wrote out the recipe and everything.)
This apron was ill-planned and a real pain in the butt. I wanted to use up some more of the denim from that old skirt. It was a long skirt, so there is lots of denim to go around. And I wanted to use that tiny bit of leftover white ruffle on the pocket. So from those starting points I just started cutting and sewing without a blueprint. All the materials were leftover from other projects, so I just threw caution to the wind.
Which is why the top is all weird. The width of the top edge did not work for laying-flat-against-my-chest purposes, so I just stuck the neck loop where I wanted. So that whole corners-sticking-out-and-flapping-free thing was not a stylistic choice. And I eventually gave up on the idea that this would look good close-up. There are all sorts of stitching oddities going on and none of the thread properly matches the fabric. And it was in attempting to sew through a thick chunk of this denim that I bent my needle. So, like I said, it was a real pain in the butt.
But from a bit back, I think it looks rather cute, in its own little misfit way.
