Often (umm, too often), I come upon a sewing pattern that just fits my aesthetic so much that I must buy it.
That's how it was with The Gathering Apron by Sew Liberated. One part utilitarian, another part feminine, with just the right amount of rustic charm. So pretty, it could (almost) be worn as a garment!
I love the designs that Meg produces at Sew Liberated. However, sewing instructions without many diagrams are more of a struggle for me--- I'm definitely a visual learner. I appreciate that Sew Liberated provides video tutorials for their patterns (you receive the password with the pattern)--- I had to fall back on the video in one part of the sewing process.
Those crossing straps & bowtie are adorable.
I'm not sure if I like the front or the back more!
I love the way it turned out and I plan on making another in a different fabric--- possibly linen next time! It looks cute on my daughter, too.
