I've had this pattern sitting in my sewing room for way too long. I swooned over it every time I saw it but with our focus strictly out of doors for the past 6 months, there was no time for sewing until now.
I'm in dire need of a little sweetness in the apron department ~ all mine are stained, worn thin, faded and frumpy. I'm all about dressing for success and baby, this will do just fine... halter ties at the neck, completely reversible, sweet sashes, good coverage, comfortable, substantial and just plain adorable!
I fell in love with this vintage look fabric at a 50% off sale and it was just the kick in the pants I needed to bring Emmaline into my life. It's trimmed and lined with coordinating fabrics from the same line ~ "Sewing Room Social". Isn't that a sweet name?
It feels SO good to get back to the sewing machine after such a long hiatus and equally good to make something useful and attractive for myself. Look out Emmaline, there won't be much rest for you, we've got a lot of cooking and baking to do...
