Look [though not too closely!] at what was accomplished here at chez SheepishOne last night:
The pattern is from Amy Butler's book, In Stitches. I am by no means an experienced sewer. In fact, I can count on one hand how many sewing projects I have under my apron waistband. Still, this pattern was fairly simple to execute. A stumbling block was hit during one of the last steps. I don't know if it was the diagram or the verbage that confused me, but it resulted in me making my own judgment call when it came to attaching the ties to the waistband. The fabric is from Moda's Mary Engelbreit line, Friends and Flowers.
And because I have an admitted problem with collecting things the minute I like them, I have purchased A is for Apron. Watch for other creations here in the future!
