I made this apron for the Sewing Republic Two Toned Apron contest. I used black vinyl which is so hard to sew with but I think it turned out well and with only minimal cursing :) I had so much fun and had never done a sewing contest before so I went all out and made the dress, hair bow, earrings and arm cuff to match! The apron has tons of pockets to hold all your much needed goodies. There is a pen pocket and three large pockets on the front and a huge hidden pocket on the back! The back is lined with a thick lightly textured black fabric I found at the thrift store and the pockets are all lined with slippery black nylon. I used the three panels like the two toned apron but I used all black and added decorative straps and silver buckles on the middle panel. Instead of the wrap around tie for the waist I attached one of my wide funky style belts with a large silver buckle. I shortened the apron so it’s more of a mini skirt length and curved the bottom edge slightly. I shot the pictures in my shop I put together in an extra room. I had to use my industrial sewing machine to make this due to the thickness and use of vinyl. I would have preferred leather but, alas, it was not in my budget. Hope you all like it, thanks for checking out my work!
