Somehow, amongst all of the busyness of our summer, I managed to carve out some time to make a project that was all for me.
Simplicity Daisy Kingdom apron pattern # 3701
A while ago I had asked Greg's Aunt Susie for apron pattern suggestions, and this was one of them. I immediately wanted to make it for myself, but, as it happens with Projects For Me, it got pushed further and further down in my queue. I actually used the little girl version of the pattern to make an apron for Lavella this past Christmas.
Happily though, I finally decided to take some time to make this, and it fits so nicely! The criss-cross straps across the back make the apron comfortable to wear and keeps it from shifting around without having to tie it too tightly. Such a great design. I love the completely unnecessary shoulder ruffles as well.
The piping and rick-rack details are a little fussy to work, but I am so charmed by the finished product, and the lined upper makes this apron feel like a true quality piece that will last for ages.
Predictably...I want to make at least 11 more!
