My colleague and friend Antoine recently left our engineering company to start a new life as a cabinet maker, and asked me to make him a work apron. He lent me his great-grandmother apron to use as a model and gave me some bits of fabric. A strap on the side was added to hang tools if needed.
I made and sewed all the bias tapes, which took quite a while to finish… but i think it was worth it. Hope it brings him luck with the new job !
