Antique lace,
Soft flowing linen,
In a minty shade of lemongrass....

A sweet, ruffled pinafore...

Perfect for gathering the harvest
of Indian Summer.

Garden chores
with a friend....

Picking flowers...

This is the prototype for a pinafore apron.
I have been dreaming of linen aprons
with soft, flowing lines,
maximum coverage,
feminine,
reminiscent of a more romantic time period.

Today I drew the plans on tissue paper
(I save tissue paper, iron it, and reuse it for patterns),
and worked until the pinafore was finished.

Oh Bev,
you are right, this is a lovely apron that makes me want to get out my book of "Tea with Jane Austin" and have a cup of tea in the garden.

I love the pinafore! It looks cool and comfortable.
I still have my fabric to make my chicken apron on my to-do list
