AOGG Inspired Embroidered Apron

Hello everyone! As you all know, I have been an "Anne of Green Gables" mood all week. That what I picked up to sew this week has had some Anne influence. This is one of those projects, an AOGG inspired embroidered apron.  =)

Green Gables embroidered on one of the pockets. 

Lilies-of-the-Valley embroidered on another pocket.

Pattern: Sense & Sensibility Ladies' Edwardian Apron Pattern (So you all know I used the e-pattern version. Which is no different from the regular pattern, you just print the pattern out yourself at home. If you are hesitant about using an e-pattern do watch these videos. I found them most helpful.)  

Pattern Description: Ladies apron inspired from a 1910-1912 apron.

Pattern Sizing: 8-18. I made it in a size 10.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes! Though I added some changes, like embroidery. =)

Were the instructions easy to follow? Super easy. 

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It is an easy pattern that can be made in so many ways.

Fabric Used: A nice muslin from Joann Fabrics.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I added some embroidery, which I did free-hand. 

Would you sew it again? Yes! I love aprons, they are so useful.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes!

  5. What a lovley apron Ashley and the embroidery is just beautiful.

  6. A very nice apron. One of my favourite styles, along with the "Jewel" apron Lovely embroidery also, a very nice AOGG touch. I made my edwardian style aprons with cross ties as I found the straight ties sometimes fell off my shoulders when bending. My next project, Harvey Girl apron,(Vintage style)

    As you can see I like my aprons large and with a full skirt,no use having a tiny waist apron for serious houseork :)
