Elmira Heights, ...
I decided to redo my Swedish Chef apron that I’ve had for a few years. The old one was one of those plain canvas aprons from Michaels that wasn’t really fun to wear and kinda dull looking. I found an old tablecloth with this neat thread detail (I’m sure there’s a proper term for it but I don’t know what it is) that I thought was perfect. I used the bib pattern from McCall’s 6334 and the apron D pattern from Simplicity 4282. I think the pleats are so pretty!
For the lettering, I used my old apron as a guide and wrote with a fabric paint marker. Seemple-a! Bork Bork Bork!
