Knot Apron Dress

April 8, 2010

This has to be my most favorite dress yet. i found a little fabric shop with some beautiful stuff, it was very hard not to buy the store out! i used this tutorial from Everyday Chaos. i thought it was explained well and very easy to follow.  The only change i made was adding the apron with a pocket.  The fabric for the apron was around 11 x 7. i hemmed the 3 sides and then gathered the top. When it was time to attach the skirt to the top part of the apron i just sandwiched the apron in the middle (just make sure to center it).  The pocket can be any size, but i found this tutorial great for getting a nice round edge.

Look at this, i can actually show you the inside of the dress. i am so proud of my neat, even hem thanks to Deb from Squiggle Twig Designs.  She has offered to be a sewing coach, to teach some new techniques and tricks of sewing. She has been so helpful. Thank you, thank you!

i am definitely going to make a couple more of these, perfect summer dress!
