It’s a Winner!

This is a very uncomplicated assembly. I really enjoyed the speed at which it came together. I used a 10oz Merchant & Mills denim. I got away with it but the bulk of this particular fabric isn’t ideal with the button fastening at the back (something I didn’t consider when choosing the fabric). I decided to permanently stitch together one part of the fold (at the back) so that I only needed to put one of the buttons through one rather than two layers of fabric. It does mean the aperture I’m left with to slide over the hips to get on is a bit on the edge. The fastening design although it looks good would be my only pattern gripe but if you considered the fabric weight and thought about this when purchasing it would not be an issue. The Apron Dress has a ‘workwear’ look and feel and an attractive skirt shape and line. I think it’s very flattering! I love wearing it ~ it’s a winner!

Organic cotton Embroidery Apron and Shorts

I loved how this apron turned out and the embroidery I added just added so much to the garment!! I have a youtube video and blog all about this pattern and how I started with embroidery! I will link the blog below and you can get to my youtube through there as well! Hope you enjoy! It is a really easy pattern!


What's not to love

I love the aesthetic of the sewing patterns from The Assembly Line and I think the apron dress is my favourite I've made three versions so far, a lightweight version for the summer a green corduroy version and a dark denim. The denim is the one I wear the most it's particularly good to wear when you're sewing as it has huge patch pockets that you can throw in seam gauge, mobile, unpicker, glasses etc. The instructions are very straightforward as always with the Assembly Line. The detail at the back can be made with either buttons or snaps I tried both and the snaps gave the best result. More info on my blog.
