>Aprons for two but not three


all three ladies

I was playing with some gingham this morning and decided I would make two aprons. So at the moment I have two mannequins all ready to cook and one looks like she is going out on the town. She is actually wearing my prom dress from 20 years ago. Yep that was the figure I had then the red manikin is my figure now and the cream one is the figure I had after one kid. Funny they are not all that much different just a few little inches but looks way different to me.

The triangle apron, the right one in the photo, I plan to embroider on the unbleached muslin later just not at the moment as those supplies are still boxed up for a move ( I know it seams like I have been in the middle of a move forever well I have).

The apron with the four tier ruffle apron has vintage rick rack for trim. I know there is none on the bottom tier I plan on doing something else on that tier. Also it has a doily for a pocket.

I actually plan on adding more details to both aprons. I just wanted to show the basic aprons I came up with this morning. I love just cutting and sewing with no pattern it is fun to see what you come up with.

On a side note my sister-in-law Becca took some real nice nature scenery that she has posted on her blog. Give it a whirl and go check them out. Let her know Wendy sent you and come back here and let me know what you thought of them too.
