If we had a square dancing bridal shower guest, she would probably like this apron. Somehow I had it in my head that each ruffle should be twice as long as the previous one, so the bottom ruffle is 5 yards, and the apron is quite a bit heavier than the others. The green floral is a new old stock vintage glazed chintz that looks brand new. The middle ruffle and sash is a cute vintage print made to look like gold ribbons pulled through eyelet — I love that fabric. At least the construction of this apron went a lot smoother than the last one, but I don’t think I’ll make another one with this much gathering.
Yesterday I received the vintage fabric I will use for Emily’s apron. It’s so cute, with what looks like a bride and groom, and reminds me of a Peynet illustration. Here’s a peek at the fabric.
