I have had a decade-long love affair with aprons, particularly those with a modern vintage feel. Thanks to the new job, I got to try out an Indygo Junction pattern. I had the bright circled trim fabric in my stash and then found this great (if old) Alexander Henry Japanese-themed print. I love the combo because they don’t quite fit.
This All-Day Apron style really appealed to me because it offers lots of coverage and it’s super-flattering. I adored the cover photos of it and when I was finished, well, I adore it in real life, too.
And the back…
There were a few little tricky bits and I made a few little changes (adding top-stitching to the apron skirt where the ruffle attaches, for one) and next time I’ll figure out a better, cleaner way of attaching the back straps. I don’t love the ‘just sew it on’ approach. Too many years of apron making vintage-style to take the lackadaisical way about it.The pattern instructions were a tad confusing when it came to attaching the trim, especially since there’s a real lack of sketches or images.
Overall, great pattern. Love the style, love the trimming and easy-on/easy-off, great coverage of it. I think I’ll be making another few.
