I finally got around to finishing my reversible apron. The pattern is from Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing. I originally bought this pattern book for the sun hat and I’ve since discovered a couple things about myself.
1. I have a slightly larger woman’s head than average. The hat was too small and I have to make a second one. Thankfully, this one fits Lily just fine.
2. I have a slightly smaller body around than average, at least if you go by the patterns in this book. The apron is a tad on the big size which is a shame because I ended up not using the patterned fabric I originally bought for this apron. I just didn’t have enough. Fortunately this project is so simple, a new apron with the right fabric can be finished in a couple hours.
I wouldn’t say I’m a master seamstress but this book is too simple for my tastes. I still plan on making a few more things out of the book but with each project I use the instructions loosely. There are a lot of tricks and simple steps that can be added to make the project easier and more successful.
Lily’s always the eager model! I’m thankful since I don’t have the right lenses to take a picture of myself! I’m going to finish aprons for both Lily and Leif before I work on my second one.
