Albany, New York...
I loosely followed the Modern Apron pattern in Jocelyn Worrall’s Simple Gifts to Stitch. It called for seersucker and although some people and non-WASPs have mixed feelings about this fabric, I secretly love it. But I didn’t have any on hand. Instead I used this birthday fabric (Water Lily from Amy Butler’s Lotus collection).
I measured, cut and sewed with ultimate carelessness so I’m surprised it turned out even this nice. I fudged some of the measurements but it alright. I agree with many others and will say that the measurements provided for the next strap are WAY too long so I copied only a few others and made one side strap detachable so you can velcro it around your big Polish head. If you happen to have one of those.
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
