Cocktails, anyone?

in Aprons

Here it is, my September project. The hostess apron.

I love it. I can’t believe it took me almost two years to actually put this together, but I did.

And here’s my action shot, trying to photograph the back of the apron myself. Of course, I realize now I should have just spun the apron around, but the picture shows how much of a goof I can be. Why not admit it?

My goal now is to find a pattern like these and make a few of these apron smocks.

I can see using them at home for working on my DIY projects but also as regular weekend wear, especially that red & white striped one.

Really cute!

I love the apron smock. I’ve been using my Sept. project more as a smock than a housedress and it’s worked really well! I was thinking that if I made another I’d make it shorter, but now I’ll have to look for a pattern like the ones you posted. :)

That’s a really cute apron, great job!

I love those smocks too, I am always looking to add more apron patterns to my collection, but I only like smock versions, I seem to get my t-shirt dirtier than my pants so aprons that tie around the waist aren’t much use to me!
