Jane & Sally Apron

I made the apron I was so inspired by from a previous post! I did it almost exactly the same but used different fabrics. The version Emily is wearing is the Big Sister size and it's huge around the neck. The ties could actually be a little longer but they are fine.

Emily was mimicking her buddy Brandon (hi Brandon).

A close up of the fabrics and scallop which was very easy to put the bias tape around. I didn't alter anything by the way except to line it before I quilted the straight lines. The pattern does not show a patchwork version so I cut about 45-50, 4" blocks. Sewed a big square then laid the pattern on it and cut. You use the leftover scraps for the strap. I think the bias tape is single fold and you use almost the whole package.

And here it is on the kitchen floor so you can see it flat.
The name of the pattern is Jane & Sally Apron from Indygo Junction.

Oh, and these pictures are after it was washed and dried. The pattern was OK, I mostly skimmed the instructions and looked at the photos. The person I got the idea from said the pattern sucked and it did sort of. They don't even put how many pieces you're supposed to cut on each pattern piece. So I was confused about the strap but I also skimmed so maybe it was just me. I'm REALLY happy with it and I love it on Emily!
