I'm terribly late with this apron. It's for one of the teachers at Fidget's preschool who got married in April. APRIL. I'm not exactly setting records with this one, am I? She likes green.
(You'll forgive me for not re-ironing this before I shot it, right? Because you're sweet. You are.)
I decided to go with dupioni silk for the tie. I've had this brown in my stash forever. I love the texture. Kind of makes it fancy. Yes, it's washable. And pre-washed, too, so it won't shrink or pucker.
My favorite part is this little vintage button on top of the brown ribbon:
Also, the topstitching on the pocket ribbon. I was too lazy to switch out the blue thread, but ended up really liking the effect. (Even if my stitches aren't 100% straight.) Don't you love it when that happens?
I hope she likes it. She is insanely sweet so I'll never know for sure.
Things may come to an abrupt halt sooner than expected around here. We were timing contractions Thursday night, but things seem to have calmed down a bit. For now...
