My lovely Aunt Vicki gave me a book a few months ago all about aprons. And I got inspired to make one. I love the idea of hostess aprons. Don't you? They're just so charming. Wouldn't you love to invite people over for dinner and come out of your kitchen wearing one while carrying a roast?
My plan was to sell it on etsy but the seam is a little wonky in the back (story of my life - wonky seams). I blame the bias tape. Actually, I blame the gal who wrote the book and suggested that if you don't want to be considered an apron-making-hack you'll make your own bias tape. So I spent 18 years of my life making 4 yards of bias tape (even though in the end it barely needed 2) and then another 18 years creasing and pressing it. And then 18 more years sewing it on then taking it out then sewing it on then taking it out. And then about 5 seconds to decide that bias tape is the Mayor of Jokeland and who cares if the seams are showing a bit. I sure don't.
And maybe you don't either, and if you don't, you can have it because I've decided to give the apron away.
The first person to calls dibs can have it, free of charge, I'll even pay for shipping. But there is one condition: You have to send me a picture of you wearing it while holding a platter of food. It doesn't have to be a roast but it needs to be something you would serve to a guest. I know...I'm so demanding. But you can humor me, right?
