Just Sewed: Apron inspired by Dorothy from Wizard of Oz

A recent apron design I came up with over the holiday break is the “Dorothy”.

Dorothy Apron- A Blue Gingham-frilled border on a sheer hemp bodice. Finished with a white satin ribbon

The name is due to the blue gingham frills that border the all natural hemp bodice of the apron; and their likeness to the blue gingham that the character Dorothy wore in the Wizard of Oz (film adaptation starring Judy Garland).

What I like the most about this piece is that there is evidence of an emerging style in the LillyBoChic line. Admirers of my designs will notice that feminine bodice shapes will often have frills or colors suggesting softness. I think that it is very necessary to allow people who identify with femininity and cherish it, to have plenty of opportunities to immerse themselves within its examples.

Therefore: flirty aprons are a must!

That being said; I also think that femininity has a hard edge- something that tells the world that we (feminine types) are willing to get out hands dirty to get the job done. What is so dirty, you might ask? Well, I suppose that is left to the imagination of the wearer and the audience.

Thanks for stopping by.
