This is the third and final part of me learning to sew from a pattern. Although I'm sure much more learning will still be happening in this department.
Sewing on the pocket.
The pocket is on.
Adding rick rack.
Wrapping my head around how the rick rack was getting sewn on now, before sewing the two parts together and flipping them was the hardest part. Jed had to help me figure it all out.
Rick rack is on front of apron.
Sewing the two apron parts together.
Just need to iron and sew the top closed.
And it's done.
And the reversible(ness) of it.
I didn't quite understand how the rick rack was going to be sewn on or how it would look on the final project (not to mention finding rick rack that matched the colors in my fabric). So, knowing how it worked out now, after the fact, I'd attach the rick rack better. In some spots there's almost none poking through.
The one back tie wasn't lying well due to the rick rack placement where it attached so I had to sew it down a bit more and on the one side, there's a little line of stitching that's not supposed to be there. But it's on the inside side.
While I love the fabric I chose, it was hard to find rick rack to match it. It will also make me paranoid about not clashing with the apron as I'm cooking.
Now I have to have some sort of dinner party so I can wear it, and I don't have room in my kitchen for a dinner party.
Also, now that I've sewn this, I think that this apron, or one made up in my mind, will be much easier to sew in the future.
