A bespoke order for Much Ado Books in Sussex, finished and posted off. The apron is a variation on a classic shape, cut a bit wider for extra coverage because they deal with a lot of dusty boxes of old books, they also requested longer ties to tie up at the front. I showed them some diagrams of different colourways and they chose the ochre denim with burgundy colour ties for the men’s size and dark green ties for the smaller women’s size. I used ‘antique bronze’ metal D-rings (for the first time) from U-handbag which worked beautifully for these aprons.
I had a lovely custom job for Sarah Myatt Glass https://folksy.com/shops/SarahMyattGlass last week. A No7 ochre/red with big side pocket (front ones fill with glass bits!) and bigger chest pocket, completed with red stitching! It’s so interesting finding out about how other craftspeople use their materials, and to be able to design aprons that really work for them.
