An apron for Cheri

I finally have been able to sit down and make an apron from this Emmeline Apron pattern. When I first came across it a few months ago, I immediately bought a pattern. But with sewing things to sell, making an apron for myself was at the bottom of the list, even though I have been needing some due to parting with a few favorites recently that I have had for years.

This apron is completely reversible and the straps can be tied in the back or front; either way!

This apron will be too much fun to wear! The pattern instructions were right. I'm not going to want to take it off! =)

Oh, I like it--especially the second picture. It looks Regency-ish to me.

Thats so cute! I too like the second picture with the bow tied in the front. I've been admiring this pattern for ages and ages. It looks great in the fabrics you chose.

Cheri said...

Thankyou, ladies!

It does resemble a little bit of Regency flair, doesn't it Rachel? =)

I too have been looking at this pattern for months. Have been tempted several times to buy it. The only thing holding me back is that I don't think it's available in a plus size. I'd hate to make it and then have it be too small! It looks beautiful the way you made it, Cheri, and I love your fabric choices.

Cheri, I also forgot to add that every time I visit your Etsy page, I drool looking at your beautiful vintage style aprons. Again, the only thing that keeps me from buying is that they're in small sizes. You are so talented!

Ruth said...

Um... don't you think you should add it to your Etsy shop? = D You've gotten me obsessed with aprons - wearing them and collecting them! LOL!

Ruth said...

Oh man, the pattern is sold out! The nerve! LOL! Hopefully they'll add some more soon.

Cheri said...

YayaOrchid,

Thankyou for your sweet compliments! =) I'll have to think about offering more sizes of my aprons.

Ruth,

Nope! I'm not adding it to my shop! =) And I'm sorry that I can't apologize for getting you obsessed with them too, LOL! =D

They are adding new patterns to their shop daily, so just be patient. =) It is a pretty easy pattern too.
