Modern Hostess Apron
This French-inspired apron was a Christmas/Birthday present for my friend, Amy, who is an incredible hostess. Several times a year she throws a dinner party, princess pancake party, cocktail party or some such frivolity. She's an amazing cook and her house is always decked out to the nines. I thought she needed an apron with a cell-phone pocket so deadbeats like me can call and say they're running late to the party.
Of course, I was finishing up this apron AND running late to the party. My long-suffering husband allowed me to tie it around his waist and snap a quick photo before I dashed out the door. Pardon the poor photo quality. The apron's really darling in real life (and the wise and bearded one's kinda cute too).
Vintage Apron Pattern from Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol; the fun street scene fabric is City Limits from Blank Quilting that I bought at Bolt.
