Black and white apron

Here's my submission for the latest Tie One On theme, Black and White.

This one was really easy and fun to sew up. I quite liked making the pleats, with all the straight, mindless stitching. Rather relaxing. And even sewing on the bias tape edging, which I usually have very poor luck with, went very smoothly. And I remembered to make the ties nice and long so they wrap around to tie in the front, which I much prefer but sometimes forget to account for. A very pleasant experience, this apron.

I love it! Those pleats are so eye-catching and fancy, and the extra-long ties are perfect.

I. LOVE. THIS. I need it! I don't have time to sew it myself so instead I'll look at yours longingly. Sigh! Nice work!

So crisp, so party perfect pretty! And the pictures look fantastic. I am loving your apron.

Sarah said...

Thank you! I was thinking it would be perfect for I cocktail party. Not that I ever host any! But now if the occasion comes up, I'll be all set. :)

Did you design the pattern? It is a really nice one.

Sarah said...

Well, "designing the pattern" makes it sound a little bit better planned than it was, but yes! I just sort of made it up as I went along.

Sarah it is absolutely fantastic, you should seriously consider making a paper pattern out of it.

That's so cute. I've never thought of tying an apron in the front but is looks so good. I'm going to have to try :)
