Polka-Dot Apron

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.

Polka-Dot Apron
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!

I love the piping.  It really makes the apron look rich.  And I'm really digging your hair.  It looks like that do was made just for you.  It's very becoming on you!

Wow! SO adorable! Great job! I really love the way that pattern fits. I have made several for myself.
