Birthday apron

I have had in my little head for quite a while that I would really like to perfect my machine sewing & start sewing pretty aprons & here is my first one.  I made this one for my Jade's birthday & she just loves it!! Woo hoo!!

I made up the pattern using the local real estate paper, all sticky taped together, bought the cotton material in Jade's favourite colour.  I looked for cotton black broderie anglais lace, but none in this town, so will pursue that else in time, so used black lace. The 'hard' part the bodice worked very well & did all the right sewing machine behaved itself & I ended up with a good result.  I changed the skirt pattern during sewing & thus need to make a new pattern when the next real estate mag is popped in the letterbox!!

Jade received her apron on her birthday & here is a piccie of her wearing my little creation.  Behind her is the most beautiful sketch of her dear little cat.  She received this from her love for her birthday as well.  Wonderful!!
