Flower Garden Apron

Exactly the way I pictured it since this project began. A row of sweet hexagon flowers at the hemline, angled slightly in the front, sitting over gathered eyelet lace. Two hexagon pockets. A prairie-like underskirt with ruffles peeking out from under the polka dotted apron top. Long ties, brought to the front and tied into a floppy bow. No written pattern, just freely creating each step as I went along. I love my new Flower Garden Apron.


Gracing either side of the apron are two hexagon pockets, each topped off with buttons of lavender.


Yummy soft, muted, purples, yellows, and greens.


Ruffly, flowery goodness. Be still, my heart.


Have a sweet weekend, everyone.

Aloha!

That is so cool and so stylish and much to pretty for an apron.
You must look wonderful in it.
How clever you made the pockets, and how lovely it with the underskirt.
But most of all, I like the big Obi- like belt.
