OK so I finally got it done! :wine: It is for someone who loves black and bright colours like pink (does that sound like you :lookround: :giggle: ). I'm really pleased with it and I think she'll like it :)

Please excuse the dodgy taken by a 10 year old photos - I desperately need a mannequin thing to do pics on!!! I should have done up the waist tighter as it looks abit dodgy but didnt' want to crease the material too much as it is a gift!

Ooh, lovely. I only wear an apron when baking as flour and me seem to fall out very easily! I rather fancy a short one for normal cooking.

A friend told me the other day she needs to buy an apron, because every time she changes he 5 week old son he pees all over her!

Apron number 2 that has taken weeks as I only have about 8.5 spare minutes a week! Excuse my sewing mess :oops:

Image
Image
The straps are long and cross over and then go through 2 loops - it is really really comfy actually (wasnt' sure how it would go but I love it!)
Image
Close up of the little loop that you put the long strap through on each side. You can also see the ending of the ruffle and the bias which is tapered and I am reallyl pleased with that too!:
Image
It was really hard to get pics and show how it is and it looked bad on me too but here is the best one to try to see the lovely curve of the apron (excuse my curves :oops: :oops: ).
Image

I decided not to put the pocket as it was on the pattern as it didnt' look very good with this pattern on the material and my accent colours (where as I think the pocket looks fab on the picture on page one that is on the book cover) - looked better without it :D
