coffee, tea and aren't these divine?

A
prons! My newest, latest, greatest obsession. I have a lot of those, don't I?


I found this book and though I already know how to make several of the featured patterns, there were a few that beckoned to me, called my name, taunted me.

Like this little number. Oh, it's so sexy! I believe there's a sheer overlay and that just piqued my curiosity. I get piqued on a lot. Don't pity me!

And this darling number, it's to die for! It has the most adorable flounce and ruffle, though it requires a good deal of binding. You know, binding and I are not great friends. We barely tolerate each other. It's because binding is independent and cheeky...it just doesn't know it's place!


Isn't this a demure little number? It 's beautiful. (I don't know why my photos didn't upload large, but I wasn't about to go back and start the whole process over. I'm lazy that way.) Just take my word that this is simply a beautiful pattern. The mustard fabric is silk...just what I choose to wear in preparing the evening dinner! I think the apron should be used as evening wear; don your stockings and heels and wear it as a skirt! I'm not sure what you'd do about the opening in the back, but these days, is that really an issue?

I'm hoping to take some photos of the aprons I've been making...but if they're bombs, you won't find any evidence of it here at It's A Wonderful..., because I'd have to rename the blog, "It's An Abomination..."

Have a fabulous weekend!
