Layla apron from BurdaStyle, as a gift for a cousin's fiancee. Her bridal shower is on Saturday, and my sister-in-law and I are teaming up for her gift. (I figured she's not even my Facebook friend yet, so there's no chance she'll find this and I can talk about it.) So we got her a bunch of the smaller kitchen doodads that she asked for on her registry, and I made the apron to add a more personal touch to it-- the main color of her kitchen stuff is red. And this French-inspired print was kind of screaming at me for her, after spending a little time with her down at the family beach time back in August.
Oddly, I could NOT make heads or tails of the actual directions on the apron, despite having made it before. So I basically just used the pattern to cut it out and then did it my own way. And it seems to have worked out well. I may have done it that "winging it" way last time too....can't remember.
I do have to say, though, that I couldn't be happier with my print-matching job for the pocket.
See? It's practically invisible! So pardon me while I pat myself on the back.
So, anyway, there it is, and I hope she likes it. And now I'd best get going....gotta get through work so I can get to some reconstructing!
