Domestic Goddess Apron

Domestic Goddess Apron

When I first saw Amy Butler's Domestic Goddess pattern, I thought it looked like the Emmeline Apron but not as cute.

So the other day I was at a quilt shop and they had a sample on display and I fell in love! I added an extra contrasting fabric and the trim to liven it up and I am so happy with the way it turned out!

I made a long version because, well, how often do you find a long apron and this feels more like a dress when you put it on, I love the construction! There is a lot of pleating and no bias cuts (which I was thankful for) I wish I had taken a close up of the pleating details, it is truly beautiful.

There were a few huh??? moments for me with this pattern, especially the last step but I survived and will have to make another one just like it since this went out to my Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice swap partner today!

I have been watching locally for this pattern but no luck. I'll have to order online.

Once again you've hit a home run with your amazing fabric combinations! Your partner will be tickled.
