An apron: Simplicity 2626
I've been meaning to do it for a long time, and now I've finally done it: made an apron for myself. I used fabric passed along by my mother-in-law and thrifted bias tape.
It didn't go perfectly, but it went pretty well. I messed up the pockets a bit and I couldn't figure out how the waistband was supposed to work (I know I'm inexperienced but I do think the instructions could be a bit clearer) so I had to pick it out and do it again. The bias tape went really well; I'll always put it on in two steps from now on.
I'm hoping that now that I've done it once, it will be easier next time. Actually I'm not sure I'll make this pattern again, since the front kind of sags out when I wear it. I think it's the fault of the pattern and not my own; it seems to be the way it's designed. It would fit better if I had broader shoulders.
I really do like it though, and I'm happy with it. Plus, if it had all been easy, I wouldn't have learned anything!
