I bought the Wizard of the Oz Fabric couple months ago, I really love how cute and colorful of the fabric, first when I got it, I didn't have a project in my mind. I always buy fabrics but most of the time I don't know what am I going to do with the fabrics. I am kind of fabrics junkies, I buy it because they looks great or they are on sale that I can't resist.
Anyway, I decide to use the Wizard of the Oz Fabric for the retro apron project. And I couldn't believe that I do have any matching fabrics which have enough yardage to finish the apron. So I went to JoAnn and got a white and light blue floral fabric, I think they are perfect match.
I finally made my hubby to form "My Double Wire Dress Form" to my body shape, so I used it to be my model. It isn't quit my body shape since when I put the apron on the dress form, I kind of stretch it out a little bit. Oops!

The pattern isn't difficult at all, but I do learn something new, I never sewed a collar, so it is a new to me. I really enjoy sewing this apron. It took longer than I thought, it is because it requires quite a bit of hand sewing which I am not really good at it.
However, I have to say that I am very proud of myself, my hand stitch looks great on this apron. And the fabrics match perfectly, this apron just looks so good!! lol
