Artisan Apron

26th August 2013

Yesterday I made my Artisan Apron from a pattern bought at the Festival of Quilts from

Janet Clare    www.janetclare.co.uk

This lovely lady was wearing her apron and I loved it and bought the pattern.


I chose linen and cotton, I know linen creases but I love wearing it! 


It is years since I have done any dressmaking and I was quite nervous cutting out the pattern and double checked everything!!


This process made me want to make an item of clothing!

It took about 4 hours from beginning to end and I enjoyed every minute.

                                                              The back view ( better than the front)



I was tempted to decapitate!!!

A number of people said they liked it at the craft fair and asked where I had bought the pattern so I gave them my blog address!!

I made my apron reversible so the other side is patterned with grey pockets. 
This matches my stall which has grey and white cloths and grey and white striped bags. 

I intend to wear this apron when I am 'textile working' and will not do any washing, ironing, cooking or housework when I am wearing it.... maybe I will wear it all the time!!!!!
