Mena... just have to tell you..[promise this is true,ha] When you sent the email telling us about the apron challenge.I went straight to my sewing room..I found the perfect fabric in my stash..[I will post tonight] It is all about cooking..and guess what is written all over it??/Kiss the Cook...[and you hadnt posted the title yet!!! SO.. great minds

think alike.hahaha.Thought you would like this.ha

I made an apron/smock! I'm new to the site and a very novice sewist, so I feel so pleased with myself. I tried to use the Pocket Apron/Smock pattern from the Tipnut collection of vintage patterns, but I couldn't work out how to size up a PDF pattern fromA4 to something usable. (Heck, I'm still trying to figure out how to work with regular patterns!) So I used it and its instructions as a rough guide and also an undershirt of my husband to guide me on size, as it's loose but not too loose on me. It turned out not at all bad, I think. I added a whole row of pockets, rather than just the two, as whether cooking or crafting with my kids, I always need extra pockets! I posted the picture and tagged it as instructed and will also try to put up a post on this over at my blog before the end of the week. I couldn't even imagine beginning to attempt the dress, so just wore black. LOL. Looking forward to seeing the dresses that others make.

well done for getting your apron finished, I hope you had that wow I made that feeling.

So I have some black fabric I want to use for the dress  -but it's not too big a piece - how much fabric did you guys use for the dress? (lengt+width and what size did you make?)?


I had the dress in my favourites already so I guess the sew weekly is a good excuse to actually make it :)

Ann, sorry, I didnt make the burda dress , so I dont know about the yardage..  It seems there was so much fitting issues with the pattern, I decided to not try it.ha.
That's okay  - I did buy it and I still plan to make it I just haven't had time for either the dress or apron this week. Oh well - maybe I'll find more time next week

This isn't a vintage pattern but I used scraps of fabric I had from other projects to make it.


Claire.. this  apron is really cute..
Cool - I really like it!
