Custom apron from ticking fabric with red and navy trim

Today, Linda created a beautiful custom apron. The customer chose navy ticking fabric with red trim and and navy piping.

The groom's/chef coordinating apron will have navy trim and red piping.

Biggest decision? deciding the stripe direction of the pockets.

I'll post the groom's apron tomorrow.

One reason, we love aprons is that we can get really creative picking the prints, and color combinations for the the accent trim and rick rack.

This style of apron was worn by Linda's grandmother, Cecilia, and it is her pattern.

This apron set is going to New Zealand, along with a Crate and Barrel gift certificate.

white lace camisole to be used as a canvas

While Linda was doing this project, I was making a camisole prototype for another customer. This top will become wearable art. It will be used as the "canvas" for a local fiber artist. Hopefully, we'll be able to make these blank canvases on an ongoing basis and we'll be looking to train one of our home sewists to make them for us. Another cooperative project of women helping women.
