Emmeline Apron

Raise your hand if you are going to buy yourself the School House Tunic Pattern!?! Mine is already on the way. Maybe I'll get lucky and it will get here in time for me to sew myself a tunic for church Sunday morning.

I second Annee's praises for Meg of Sew Liberated. I bought her Emmeline Apron pattern two Christmases ago, and I've made it half a dozen times at least. The pattern is well-written and easy to understand. Every time I make it I'm reminded of why I think it is such a beautiful apron, but I'm also reminded that it is a labor of love because you are essentially making two aprons.

Here's the Emmeline Apron I made over the past couple of days. The only major modification I make on my apron is the width of the band beneath the bodice. I make it 2 or 3 inches wider than the pattern says.
Sorry my pictures aren't the greatest. The Italian is on a business trip and he's my personal photographer. I was forced to learn the timer on my new camera, and the results were less than awesome.

I'm a little slower than Annee. I'm starting to think she really does have a sweatshop set up over there in Korea! This apron was made many months ago, but it is my all time favorite Emmeline Apron that I've sewn. I *heart* Anna Maria Horner. It's made entirely from her fabrics.

Maybe another reason why I can't keep up with Annee is that I've been eating too many of these.

Try them. They are delicious.

'Til tomorrow friends! I have sick children on antibiotics who by my orders will be doing NOTHING tomorrow, so I have high hopes of making this skirt!

I bought that pattern 2 years ago and still haven't made it. It is adorable and your aprons have inspired me! Now I just have to find the perfect fabric!

That second apron is my favorite one too! It's hanging up in my laundry room right now, just waiting for me to come strap it on for the morning chores! Thanks for making it for me :)

Of course the new one is beautiful too. So much amazing fabric to choose from.
