YEEEHAAA Buckerettes!! Reversible western apron for the Sewing Republic apron remake challenge. The big change I did was making it reversible fun & flirty. I shortened the apron a little. One side is longer in length than the other and I added a nice little embroidered detail along the bottom. I left the edges on the longer side unfinished and frayed them a little to make it a little more rustic. I made both sides longer in width so I could have more gathers and pouf. I added different kinds of pockets on each side. Bows and stars for details.
One side has two tone with gingham and buckerette fabric with little bows on the pockets to tie in the longer side. The other side is a solid blueish thin cotton that looks like denim. I added the gingham to the pockets to tie in the front. I added a floral waist band and ties (which gave me trouble).
This month long challenge took me about a month to get too!!! I’m pretty pleased with the outcome given my time constraints. I had fun with photoshop at the end so I thought I would share it with you. :)
gingham black/white cotton, thin blueish cotton (denim looking), red/black/old gold thread, star buttons
