A new sewing adventure to bore you all with: I borrowed a vintage apron pattern from Lemonianta and used it to make her an apron as part of her birthday present.  It turned out well, and here it is (on me):

Lyra’s Godmother liked it so much she has requested one the same for her birthday!  It’s a great pattern although quite fiddly due to lots of gathering, and uses a whopping 2.6m of fabric, which could make two dresses!  But it is a lovely, unusual garment, and I love the vintage style, especially the full skirt.  And of course, it’s always good to make things for other people.
