This apron has a great retro feel, but has a very current look...especially if you use awesome Sis Boom fabrics!
The apron in the picture above is made from a great mix of new and old Sis Boom prints. I LOVE it. It may be a gift for a special friend, if I can part with it.
Here is the backside...so cute (and no, that is my dressform Bessie...not me - oh how I wish I had her adjustable proportions depending on my mood and the outfit).
And the reverse...so sweet!
Now this one is "my" apron. I made it holiday festive, but really, I could wear it everyday (if I actually cooked). It is reversible, has two wonderful pockets for hankies, phones, lists, spoons, etc. I wore it to Jen's most recent holiday show in fact. She had hers on too, and I so wish I had a pic...she was completely adorable!
So this is the thing that makes Betsey super unique...the removable side bows. They give so much drama and cuteness to the back of the apron. Whether you are wearing jeans or a little black dress, these bows will flatter, minimize, and be a walking conversation piece as you serve champagne and hors d'oeuvres.
This apron is my favorite of all time. It is a gift for Lou's kindergarten teacher, who is completely wonderful and I suspect at some point will be nominated for sainthood. I mixed two of my very favorite prints (Amanda Fleur from Pretty Please, and Maeve from Queen Street).
I added one pocket, and personalized it with her initials (so I wouldn't hoard it for myself). Whether she is doing major holiday cooking at home, or just shielding herself from kindy art supplies, I know she will put this apron to good use!
So now on to the gorgeous tester creations...they didn't have much time given the fact that we wanted a mid-December release, but they outdid themselves with time to spare!
First up is Cathy's gorgeous daughter in her apron...she is cute (and the epitome of fun and sweet) the Madeline print!
Heather's apron is completely gorgeous...her sewing is meticulous, just like her embroidery designs!
And here is Jeanne's version on her gorgeous daughter. I'm pretty sure that I know Miss J's tastes in colors and prints, so that apron may be a keeper rather than a gift ;)!
Here is a very adorable representation of the little girls' version. Her mama Jenny is a great seamstress, and I had the privilege of hanging out with her sweet family when I went down south for my class reunion. Please don't let the very green grass distract you from the great apron and the beautiful child. We all need to pick up and move to Texas!
So loving Jessica's version - crisp and perfect, just like everything she creates!
Swooning over Marlo's chic black and white apron....she knows what her mama loves (though I did score you some rare red and white stuff ;) )!
And here is precious little Ms R. in a super pink little girlie apron!
And how fun and cute is this? Little miss L. made snow ice cream in her apron, and she couldn't have been cuter!
Ok, one more and I will stop (I hope)...our girl Jenny made a gorgeous apron and blogged it here. You need to follow her if you don't already (she has awesome taste and is absolutely hilarious)!
Soooooo.....time for my 100th post giveawway! All you need to do is write in a response and tell me the one pattern you would like as a present. The first 15 people to respond get their pattern of choice....so easy! I've been blogging for two years now, and I know I should have at least 6000 posts, but dangit, this is a real milestone for me. I am not a super social person, and I only blog when I really feel like my thoughts will enhance your life in some way. Hopefully I am crawling out of a major creative lull, and I will post more of merit in the new year!
WOW - that was fast!!!!
I've emailed patterns to everyone with a visible address. I still need addresses for:
