Pretty in Pink

 Pretty in Pink

This apron was a special order.  I was given two color choices because the recipient really liked lavenders and pinks.  I had chosen several fabrics with lavender colors and was having trouble choosing so I went back to the fabric cabinet and this beautiful pink just screamed at me...pick me!
So I did.  My photography doesn't do it justice at all because it is really beautiful.

Enlarging my Cora's Apron Pattern.

I laid Grandma Cora's Apron on a newspaper a few years back like she would have done.  I have used this taped together pattern since that time.

Today I need to enlarge for another apron choice.  I've been asked to make the bib wider for better coverage.  I added an inch all around.

See this is a beautiful combination.  I really like this pink.
Fabric Description:
Fabric Susan Branch 2007 RJK Fabrics "It was the usual "zoo tea"  You know, we eat, the other watch.  Princess Margaret.

 Cut out with pockets ready to be sewn on.

Mannequin is size 8  
This apron would fit Small - Xtra Xtra Large with no trouble
Small would of course be possible it would go around to the back and be tied a little tighter that is all.

The neck straps are adjustable.  The Cora's Extra Coverage Apron will have these rings or simple ties to be tied to fit.
The original Cora's Apron has a sewn neckband that fits most everyone.

Still very simple but the most useful household apron you will ever own.

I didn't want to wrinkle any further so I didn't tie straps but look at the extended length.
This would fit anyone.  I like that when it is tied it makes a really pretty bow with flowing ends.

I'll leave you with this view looking out from the front porch.

If you need an apron please see the links on the top tabs or right sidebar for the ETSY and Handmade Artists Shops.  Feel free to contact me.
