I made this for a dear friend and although I am pretty sure she’ll love it, I do too and I’m sad to see it go. Luckily, I have an apron of my own using these very same fabrics. I’ve been selling more and more of this style and I thought a post with some close-up pictures of the apron detailing would be nice to share. They are details of construction I’d look at if I was shopping for an apron and since my online customers cannot pick up and look at any of my work, pictures are the next best thing. Enjoy!

Ruffle detail – the ruffle is highlighted with coordinating bias trim:
View of the apron lining:
The ruffle and bias trim taper on both sides and the waist ties are attached underneath the ruffle so the apron wears smoothly at the waist:
Lastly, the ties are extra-long and can be tied behind or in front in case you like tucking a towel into the waistband of your apron for extra protection:
