How the sewing test came about!
Got the pattern, got the material and extras..... easy!!!
Got it cut out.... 5 pieces.... only 5 pieces... Well, I kinda forgot that I haven't sewed anything for awhile so had to do the minor adjustments on the sewing area, clean off the table, set up the iron (had to find the iron) ya know.... all the details...
Then I thought I would just TWEAK the pattern a little! That's where I should have said to myself, "STICK TO THE PATTERN!!!!! HONESTLY, STICK TO THE PATTERN!!!"
So, long story short and two, yes two, days of sewing, this is what I came up with. Now you might say, "It looks like the pattern to me, minus the pockets (she didn't want pockets)."
BUT, I made it reversible!!!! Oh yes I did!!
Now for all you sewing geniuses, this would be no major feat. But for me, the one who hates to follow the patterns and who can't stay focused on a project for more than an hour at a time, This is ONE MAJOR APRON!!!!
So now I have a whole new respect for all those contestants on Project Runway!
HOW DO THEY DO IT????
