Fun Spring Apron

Another apron...I know.
What can I say, I love apron and I guess I am becoming the apron lady to my sisters. Anytime there is a birthday or shower they tell me I should make an apron, and that is how this one came to be. My sister-in-laws birthday was a few weeks ago and she is so hard to shop for. So my other sis-in-law said that I needed to make her an apron because she loves the other one's I've made and has wanted one too. So I knew what to get her and I have been looking (loving, fondling, ogling; I sound like a fabric pervert) at this fabric for a while at Joann's wanting to make something from it.
Funny enough, this fabric although new, was the same print on a vintage apron pattern package!
How crazy, right!?
I have never done the heart bodice with the ruffles and they were surprisingly easy. Althoug, next time I think I need to make it just a little wider through the heart-part of it. I made the fabric flower in the center, but then never sewed it on before I gave it to her. I made this the night before we went to breakfast and was just finishing when they came to get me in the morning, I took so long deciding whether or not I liked the flower that I had to leave before I decided!
I think I like it better with the flower...or maybe without....I don't know.
What do you think?

With the flower.
Without the flower.

Don't you just love this fabric?!


  1. Nice to meet another fabric pervert! There are few things as fun as being in a nice fabric store touching the goods. I just made new curtains and a table cloth out of this beautiful French stuff. Roosters and lavender everywhere, but I need to dry clean it. I also made a black and white toile curtain for my daughters room. Love, love , love your aprons, Emily. You're always doing the awesome!

  2. I like the apron with, and without, the flower. Both versions are gorgeous. Is there any way that you could make the flower into a brooch and hence removable for when the apron owner wants a change. Just an idea, brilliant idea lady :)

  3. I think either one looks good.
