I had seen these aprons in stores and wanted one so - but they ran upwards of $80, and alas, that wasn't for me.
Then, one day blog surfing, I came across a link to an awesome pattern for it:
Emmeline apron pattern
And I am thrilled that it came out sooo nice! I'm a new sewer, and so I was nervous, using 40% off fabric from Joanne's just in case it came out looking totally home-made and I'd have to trash it (or put it into the "schlump around the house" pile). I am so thrilled at how it turned out! and doesn't look 40% off!! It was slow go and I ripped out and redid a few seams here and there - but I really do love it..... What do you think?
