Can you hear the choir of angels singing the Halleluia Chorus??? Nothing like finishing up at 10:45 at night the day before it is due. But I LOVE this apron. I used silk that my husband picked up for me in Singapore four years ago that I was always too nervous to use for anything. I was still nervous this time, but courage beat out spending money on silk at the store! I used the Cottage Half Apron pattern from Marie-Madeline Studio, but I sewed the three layers together to give it some sassy flounce. I added a Christmas Tree pin on the waistband to add some extra sparkle and bling. My partner said she preferred full aprons, but I really hope that this will be okay.
