Amanda's Apron

When I was in Canada I bought some cheap fabric to make a quilt. 
You can read all about that adventure here

My sister came over for a visit and was asking me if I thought I could make an apron for her. 
She wanted one that would fit her plus sized figure AND cover her boobs. 

I have never made one and I told her so. 

She was ok with my lack of experience. 
we had just one problem.

it was sunday and I didnt know about any local fabric places let alone if they were open. 

luckily for her I had bought some fabric for the previously mentioned quilt AND she liked it. 

The next step she showed me some of the ones she saw online that she liked. 

I cant do that!

Well maybe.... something like that.....

SO we started thinking and I started cutting. 

I did no measurements. 

I held pieces up to her and asked do you like this here or there, this long or that long.

She wanted a pleated front, with a rounded bottom and a sorta gathered top

holding it up to see if it would work

darts in the top
Apron strings
Sweet little bow
Rounded bottom.
that a wrap

Hope she gets a lot of use out of it :)

Well, it's my opinion, if you make her an apron to use for cooking, THEN, she should make you something to eat. An honest trade. lol
Nice work, you could sell those.
