Winter Wash Half Apron
Ever since I first printed my Winter Wash silkscreens earlier this month, I knew I wanted to make another two tiered/double skirted half apron (similar to the one I made with my Vintage Collection print). This time I used a red and white Nordic snowflake print for the apron. The top layer of the half apron skirt is a fat quarter panel of my Winter Wash print cut with rounded edges and lined with bleached linen. I did that for two reasons. For one, it makes for a nice finished edge. Secondly, the bold red and white design would have shown through the white Essex.
Since I don't wear aprons while I cook, I put this apron in my shop and tried to size it such that it would fit a wide range of body types. The gathered waist band measured 15 1/2" and there are 37 1/2" long ties on either side. They can be wrapped around and tied in front or tied behind.
I'm having fun exploring different possibilities for this print!
Oh, and the cookies seen in the first picture are today's bit of baking for the freezer stash. They are snickerdoodles...recipe here.
