The Addison Hostess Apron
My entry for the Moda Sliced Competition – Apron Challenge.
I’ve used a number of different construction techniques to create the perfect hostess apron. Greet your guests in style!
Fabrics include Reunion by Sweetwater, La Petite Ecole by French General and Modern Workshop by Liesly Gibson for Oliver + S
Two way Apron sideways by lovefrombeth
I wanted to design a ‘desk apron’ to keep bits and bobs to hand but wanted it to be more exciting than a simple pocket with sections. By making it wearable too I could indulge in bows and frills and give it some character!
While you are using your machine the apron skirt will rest on your lap so your bits and bobs are just where you need them.
The pocket, which is hidden behind the bow, has sections for different tools and notions.
When you are working away from your machine, hand sewing or cutting, you can wear it as you would a normal apron. The table section folds behind the skirt and the big bow at the front continues round to tie at the back. There is a wide loop under the skirt to hold the ties out of the way when they are not needed.
The measuring tape is appliqued, with embroidery floss, to the table section. It is positioned at the front so that it can be used for a quick measurement check when sewing. Handy!
The apron uses 3 fabrics from separate ranges. The feature fabric is from the Punctuation range by American Jane. The lining print is from the circa 1934 range by Cosmo Cricket and the accent fabric is from Urban Cowgirl by Urban Chiks
Quilt Story’s Apron
This was such a fun project to create!! The bib or bodice on this apron is fit for a woman! I’ve added lots of details with trims, bows, ruffles and a scallop on the bottom. The fabric lines used are mostly Ruby and Sophie. with some Bliss. I used fat quarter cuts throughout, and yardage on longer pieces.
On the inside of the bodice is a secret little pocket for your phone! I love this and made it custom for me, so hopefully you find this useful too! 🙂 I always have my phone on me, plus having it closer to me on my chest also makes it so I can use my headphones to listen to music while I craft and clean.
I added a separate “tool belt” to use specifically when I’m crafting. It will conveniently fit all of your tools, rotary cutters, tape measures. quilting pens, etc.. It coordinates and easily ties over top of the existing apron. I love the option of using it when I need it and taking it off when I’m done.
You will notice on the skirt of the apron a pocket with the super sweetest little deer resting on a quilt! 🙂 I love to embroider in my free time and was so excited that we were asked to incorporate embroidery floss on this project.
Finally I took a measuring tape and turned it into a rosette! I added some fabric bits here and there and I think it turned out sweet 🙂 It is removable with a pin on the back.
I hope you like my apron, it was so much fun to make! And thanks to my darling niece for modeling!
