Nowhere In Parti...
A half-apron with two pockets and ruffles made using a self-designed pattern. I tried making this apron from old jeans and some fabric scraps. There wasn’t enough pink cotton fabric left to make pockets on both sides. But this way the apron can be worn with pocket side out or no-pocket side. I also made the straps out of the jeans (because there wasn’t enough of the pink cotton). That didn’t work very well because the heavy denim made the ties too stiff. The apron is wearable and serves as a good proof of concept, but future versions should use lighter fabric for the straps.
