Hello! It’s been awhile (well, only a week). Anyway, thought I’d share this apron I made over a year ago that I included in this week’s apron challenge at the Sew Weekly. Kind of cheating, but at least I admitted it was from last year!

The two little pockets are handy for little items, though admittedly I don’t stick things like a whisk in it when I remember to use it for cooking. Sometimes I think an apron like this would also be useful for those times I eat pasta and the tomato sauce always seems to find a way to my shirt (even if just a little speck, gah, clumsy!).
In other news…
- I finally put a project up on BurdaStyle – my trousers from the last post. I wore them to Cirque du Soleil last weekend – it’s always satisfying to wear something you just finished, don’t you think? And, thanks to the Sew Weekly ladies for the special mention in the weekly newsletter! It was a fun surprise when I opened the email 🙂
- The Colette Sencha Blouse: hmmm, though I’ve seen pretty versions, I’m not so sure about this pattern on me after making a muslin of view 3 (the one with the keyhole opening). Maybe I’ll feel better about it after lowering the neckline, as I’ve seen others do because of the “choking” feel. I tend to prefer v-necks or scoop necks, basically anything that’s not a turtleneck (ick!), but I thought the keyhole version would be a nice option for me. Rather than dwell on something that I’m feeling so-so about, I’ve put this blouse to the side for now.
