I grew up in Hawaii and loved the "mama-san" aprons worn by Japanese women; they seemed so attractive, while being practical at the same time. I've never understood those skimpy little aprons worn by a lot of women...they must not be as messy as I am when cooking!
I know, I know, in my last post I was all set to do a major cleaning of my studio, and I DID, for a day or so...but I had ordered, then lost, this pattern a year ago and when I finally unearthed it, I NEEDED to make one for myself...
I used quilting cottons that I had originally bought in my purse-making days and used the pattern as is
except for lengthening the sleeves. There is elastic in the wrists, so they can be pushed up out of the way when doing dishes.
"costume" for every day!
Now, back to cleaning!
