I came across the fabulous Alexander Henry “Pin Ups” fabric collection, fell in love with the elegance of the Obi Apron pattern (which has such a gorgeous 50’s look) and decided that my girlfriend’s christmas presents this (2010) year would be a combination of the two!
The skirt of the apron, front of the waistband and one tie were made with a coordinated cotton and the back of the waistband, second tie in the Alexander Henry fabric, the idea was that they looked quite prim but that underneath this was a hint of “naughtiness” to each apron. They were then decorated with ribbon, stitching, charms and a “Temptaprons” label.
Hope to soon have pics of the girls wearing them :) .. and to make one for myself! Done, finally! Using all the fabrics from the other aprons… 50s fabulous :D
