    My grandma has made me aprons out of the same weight of fabric. I like them pretty good, though they are light. So I think using that material was just fine, though I guess a D-ring would be too heavy for it.

    How much of this fabric did you buy? You must have had tons to make 2 dresses, an apron and clutches. :)

    I like how you used the D-ring for the neck tie. Would you recommend doing that again or would you prefer regular ties from now on?

      I actually did a dress for myself first (never posted here), and used the leftovers to make my mom an apron b/c she loved the fabric. My sis-in-law had a fit, so off to get more of the same fabric for her dress and more for clutches! They love me there!

      I like the d-rings, but that was my first experience with them and I got the wrong size :( If I were to make it again for myself, I might just use ties. I followed a pattern from the Martha Stewart website. I didn’t like the end of the tie just hanging there up front though…also should’ve used a stiffer fabric, but I was such a newbie!
