Kappogi - Japanese Apron

Added Feb 11, 2009

This is a Japanese style apron called “kappogi”. I made this as my mother-in-law’s birthday present. I love the undulating tucks in the centre!! Well actually… I had to do this because initially I made the bodice way too narrow (I didn’t use a pattern… mistake!) :P Anyway, I’m glad I did it in the end, cos I think it looks really nice. Hopefully she likes it too!

    Amazing craftsmanship! The shadow effect of the tucks is very striking.

    Those undulating tucks have turned a simple apron into a beautiful garment (there are no such things as mistakes huh?), they would be make a beautiful feature on a dress or a shirt. Well done, your mother-in-law is very lucky.

    The tucks in the center are a beautiful detail. They are perfectly done, and it looks as if you put lots of work into them.
