Ok ok .. I admit.. I shouldn't be sewing. I should be tidying up the house and any number of other wifely duties. But I am in the midst of a very tricky pattern alteration and so I thought I'd get some light relief by whipping up something that didn't require a pattern at all. This apron. I created it using the draping method of pattern construction whereby you pin the fabric on the straight grain to centre front of your dress maker's dummy and cut accordingly. It's that simple with an apron: it's a lot harder with anything else.
