Cathedral City ,...
Here is my interpretation of the two tone apron for the Sew Republic contest. I have changed the center to a kick pleat and have top stitched the pleats to keep them sharp and crisp. I used my serger to do a roll hem on the edges, omitted the pocket as I didn’t want to cover up the pretty fabric, and changed the belt to an obi type- for some extra style! The unique thing about my apron is that it is reversible and a mirror image on either side. I used one of my favorite fabrics for this, the collection is called Deer Valley by Joel Dewberry, he made several color combos in each print so I was able to find a red background for one side and a blue background for the other side- this way you can wear whatever color suits your mood, and if you happen to get one side dirty you could always flip it around and still remain stylish while entertaining. I love reversible aprons and making this mirror image one was a fun challenge.
