She was with me at the fabric store and picked out the main fabric which she loved. I showed her a striped coordinating fabric and suggested using it as trim. "No, I just want this fabric," she assured me. Then, after she'd gone off to the knitting section, I saw this other coordinating fabric, the jelly beans, and thought for sure this would make a better apron (being the self-designated arbiter of taste in the family). Well, it took her a few months but she has confessed to really, truly hating the jelly bean fabric and, gee, could I just alter it to have the main fabric. Since she asked so nicely, I had to oblige. So, here is the plain-Jane version which I actually prefer now. My favorite part is the vintage buckle to adjust the neck strap.
