June Cleaver, Version 5.0? (June 30, 2011)

I’ve never been an apron-wearing gal. This changed on Monday. When it’s your apron, one you designed and sewed, you can become an apron-wearer in a heartbeat!

We started our aprons at our final sewing class a few days ago. Somehow I thought I’d finish the whole thing there, but this was not so. After our tutorial we measured and cut our fabric using the teacher’s prototype. I finished mine at home and was happy with some parts of it but it didn’t have the retro feel I wanted. So I shortened the length three inches, rounded the bottom of it, fixed the strap and kept adding rickrack until it had the fun vibe I was after. Betty Crocker with attitude? That’s me!
