Pleated Apron

for a friend's bridal shower next week.

Photobucket

I used Jess's tutorial. It's so pretty I might have to make one for myself! I love that it's fully lined (so I don't have to cry that my pinking shears method is not that awesome/I can still sew for other people without a serger) and the pleats are so pretty. The only thing I would change is to use less interfacing in the ties, as they're kind of stiff. My friend is smaller than me, so she'll be able to tie the ties in a bow or knot them. I'm scheming a way to use the leftover fabric and more polka dotted pleats for a skirt (or dress?) for Ansley. . . .

  2. I'm loving the polka dot pleats. You should get a matching purple thong for her to wear underneath. It is for a bridal shower.....right?? :D
