After WEEKS of trying I finally was able to get Mediafire to upload the Pottery Barn PJ's pattern!!! Woo hoo!! You can find it HERE. I also fixed the link to it in the tutorial. This is wonderful as I have received over 35 emails about it... yeah that many ha! I would say 95% of them were so sweet though so thats great! Happy JimJam making!
For the first apron in Apron Week I really wanted to make one of my own designing. I wanted something to wear while prepping for our New Years party so I wanted it to be on the glamorous side, without going over board... after all it is going to get cake mix splattered on it :) I also had been mooning over some lace one of my lovely readers Hillary sent me and thought I should break down and use it. Thus was born the Sparkly and Bright apron:
It is your basic halter apron with a touch of romance at the collar:
I like the layer look that the HMS Lollipop offered so I used that then added the lace to give it some *omf*. I really love how it turned out and think it would look gorgeous over a pretty party dress, I was in jeans an and a shirt and it still looked pretty cute!
My one regret would be that I didn't make the waist tie long enough. I thought for sure it was but if you try and tie a bow it gets all bunched and tiny, so I have to stick with a knot.
The pattern for this apron will be available when I post the tutorial on my Shabby Apple knock off of their Carmel Apple Pie apron. I will also add the few extra steps for adding the lace and making the bottom have layers during that tutorial. I hope your New Years was full of sparkles and fun and that 2011 is full of happiness and blessings!
