The weather has cooled, and it’s as if degrees in the 80s are my favorite high 60s. I get up earlier, I have more energy, I think about accomplishing stuff like cleaning bathrooms and weeding, which were beyond me during the heat wave in July.
I went back to my roots and sewed a version of my “Farmhouse Lady” apron. I love the scalloped hem (not too visible because of my poor photography) and I’m mad about the farmhouse prints. I have a soft spot in my heart for this apron because it’s the first I ever made, in prints rooted from my stash.
Attention, Uncle Lloyd: Supermodel Willow showed up tonight, if only to show her ass as she scratches topsoil over shit.
Man, do I love these prints:
Here’s the apron, which I’m mad about.
This is a brand new apron, fun to make, practical, tied together at the sides, and featuring a full back as well as the front. It’s tied at the sides with twill tape, for much sizing adaptability. Amazing feature: it’s open at the bottom, so it can be used as a laundry bag or a receptacle for gathering beets or tomatoes from the garden. I’m going to call it “Kitchen and Garden.” It’s tabard style.
Bright print. Verso: A pretty, subdued, Chinese print:
It’s easy to wear, has deep pockets for garden trowels and random radishes, and I love twill tape ties:
I should have pulled the fabric down and straightened the apron. I’m not only a bad photographer, but a bad stylist. Note Willow burying, well, something.
Here’s a better idea of the swell properties of the apron. Clean, useful, plain.
If either apron strikes a chord and you want to buy it, shoot me a message.
