Don't you just LOVE Anthropology! Um I do and if you don't you are c-r-a-z-y CRAZY! I have a list of things that I am going to "attempt" to make. The first thing on my list is the Tea and Crumpets apron in teal:
Any who it is my luck that this month at "create with me" at ucreate that the project is full length aprons. The apron tutorial they have on there is a good base for the above pictured apron, thus giving me the mojo to create my first Anthropology knock off. Oh how I love my sewing machine!
Three hours and four dollars in fabric later (had the trim on hand):
I followed the tutorial on Ucreate but I did piping on the belt and added the ruffle and flower in the front. Both are super easy to do. I still don't have a ruffle attachment but it isn't that hard without one. I make a tube of fabric by sewing a long strip in half inside out. I then turn it to the right side and sew a hem down the middle that is 4.5 in stitch length. Then pull the top stitch and ruffle the fabric. Keep adjusting until you get desired length. I did ruffled chiffon on a skirt tutorial here.
I think my apron looks just as good as the Anthropology one and for so much cheaper.
What do you think?
If you are looking for me I will be in my new apron baking some truffles or something....
