I have found a wonderful apron pattern that is;
and easy to sew.
It's McCalls Retro Aprons pattern #M5643
You know I usually source thrifted fabric but the day before I spotted this rose pattern in the local haberdashery shop and had to have it.
It looks very similar to a Villeroy & Boch dinner set pattern
"Switch Summerhouse-A Rose"
of which I have some pieces and have never grown tired off.
I couldn't cope with a whole dinner set but it accents beautifully with the green version and plain white naturally.
So I have really spoiled myself and paid waaayyy more than I normally would for "apron fabric"
for now it will hang in my kitchen for a couple of days till I get up the nerve to stop looking at it and actually get it dirty.
