Cupcake Apron

I have made dresses that were less involved than this apron. That said, none of it was hard, but was picky. It is cute, but not so cute that I will make it again, unless, for some odd reason, I need any apron for an event. If I sold things at craft fairs, or worked somewhere like that where my crafty cred needed to be broadcasted, then yes, I would make this again.

The apron is displayed on my new, paper tape dress form ( just google it for many, many, tutorials on the subject. I have named her Truly. Because it was truly startling to see how big I've gotten, and it will be truly wonderful to be able to get clothes to fit better, and it is truly a conscious effort to love my self as I am now, and not how I will be in some undefined future.

Here's the vintage seam binding I used around the neck and pockets. Sweet! One 4 yard package did just those areas.

Remember how we thought we were "fat" back when we were teenagers? I'd be delighted to be that size again (without dieting or exercise of course).

Truly a cute apron, even if it was a bit more work than you expected.
