hello and goodbye little apron

aha! i finished one of my works in progress this week! and it also happened to be my first adult sized apron. well, half apron.

this is such a simple project it is almost silly. but, considering i have only one year of machine sewing under my belt, i can still pat myself on the back, k? i didn't follow a pattern. (i have a teeny tiny irrational fear of them.) here are the measurements i used.

half apron measurements

i love the look of the thick waistband.  it is tres flattering.  i also like the smooth modern look. (not to mention my irrational fears also include ruffles.  i know, i know.  i will face them at some point.)  and isn't it fun to have it reversible?  i chose prints with different moods to suit the day.  also, if one side gets dirty, you could just flip it. 

next time, i will try making it longer.  with my fuller figure, i ended up preferring it tied higher than my natural waist (like under the bustline higher), which meant it fell shorter than i expected.  i also would like to lengthen the straps, so i can wrap them back around to the front to tie.  just cause it looks cute. 

goodbye little half apron

one last goodbye before i send you off to your new owner.  soon you will be living on the island of zanzibar! my little half apron, what a world traveler you will become.  take care of my friend and keep her clean.  i look forward to hearing of your adventures in africa.

(i'm the same as you about patterns. maybe one day we'll get over our fears and try one. haha)
