I made an apron.
It took only a few hours to draft the pattern and make the actual apron, but that doesn't mean this was a quick make, since the idea has been at the back of my mind for several months. Because the apron had to be suitable for both of us, I went for a utilitarian, pared down look. The apron is made from medium weight denim, it has a concealed pocket, and straps that cross over at the back, and is completely devoid of any buttons or ties.
Here is Patrick modeling the finished result.
|You can tell it's Patrick,|
his arms are hairier than mine…
|And he has a beard|
When I wear the apron there is more of a cross over at the back, but it doesn't drown me, so I think the size is the right fit for both of us. Now Patrick has something he can wear when making bread (a weekend hobby) and I have something to protect my clothes from all the fluff and threads they constantly attract.
