My husband has been wanting an apron for his hobby for a while (might be a hint for me to get or make one for him?), so I made one for him for his birthday this year.
Pattern:Simplicity 1140, a “Swing patterns for Dummies” pattern, View C.
Size made:One size.
Pattern pieces:8 pieces for all views, I only used two (apron body and pocket).
Fabric used:Indigo Denim, 100% cotton, 170cm width, 1m length, made in China, bought fromSpotlight. Straps are cotton twill (3.5m per colour), and buckles and clasps all from Spotlight. Grommets bought inJapan.
New Techniques used:Setting grommets; Sewing denim; Sewing vinyl (on buckles).
Modifications: Replaced sewn straps with buckles, clasps and grommets; Lengthened apron by 25cm; Eliminated pocket decoration; Made interchangeable straps.
