Hopefully some you of like pink, because the May apron, which was made from a vintage embroidered linen tablecloth, is very pink. Because I wanted to utilize as much of the tablecloth as possible, I constructed the apron front with two pieces, which means I have enough fabric left for another apron. I didn’t realize I had positioned those flowers right over the boobs until I put the apron on the dress form for photos.
This linen is heavyish, but I lined the bodice and neck pieces anyway just to give them a little more structure. The bias trim is made with a geometric print that I thought looked nice with the cross-stitching, and there’s a bit of vintage rick-rack inserted in the front seam. The ties are grosgrain ribbons.
The monthly apron giveaway will run for the rest of this year (and maybe longer), and I’ll try to post the apron in the beginning of the month.
THERE ARE TWO RULES:
I must know you — meaning you are a reader/commenter on my blog (and not just for previous giveaways).
You have not already won an apron in the monthly apron giveaway (if you’ve won an apron before this year, you can still enter).
If you would like to enter to win the May apron, please let me know by leaving a comment. The winner will be announced on Sunday evening, May 11, at 5:00 pm PDT.
