Crinkle Cotton and Aprons

Now what to do with 3 metres of pale blue crinkle cotton?
Originally I was planning to use it for toiles, but once it arrived I saw that wasn't viable. Next I thought a circle skirt would be nice. But that seems is a bad idea.
Then I saw some aprons over at Hectic Eclectic and thought ooh, maybe I can try an apron. Its only gonna get covered in flour so if its a bit scruffy it won't matter.
There's a slip on apron pattern on antique pattern library from the 1920's which I think I might try.

"How hard can it be?"
If it works out I'll be using it for some baking...instead of covering myself in flour as usual.


  1. Brilliant, I love the idea of such a coverall apron. Flour has no chance to get onto your clothes! And it really does try doesn't it! :)

  2. My mum had one that I liked to borrow...despite it being too big for me. Since then I've wanted one.
