Mommy Apron in Gingham and Strawberries

 I have finally finished the "mommy" version of the last apron I posted. This one was made using the same fabric but I changed the design a bit. I decided to go with a sweetheart neckline, and instead of bordering the skirt with a continuous ruffle, I added 3 rows of ruffles to the bottom only, alternating the patterns. Once again I used a solid red for accents to break up the patterns. This one used the black and white gingham for the main fabric instead of the strawberries used in the child's version, which I think lends itself well to a cute, but more adult, apron (as does the sweetheart neckline I think).

Here is the child's version posted earlier so you can see them as a set. I have the child's one on my adult mannequin, which is why it looks short with an almost empire waist :-)
