A bold, black and sexy apron design

Art Work and Sculpture, the Life of anieKsteph

This design was so unexpected. I started off with basic experimentation with my serger (which I love, and cherish as it makes the finishing process seamless- pun intended heh heh).

I used my Janome serger to join the black lace to the bodice, as well as discovering a new approach to creating the waist ties/ belt. I was super nervous about using my Singer Iron to press the seams flat; so I tested on a scrap piece of fabric and was reassured by the fact that my concerns were correct! Too much heat on this material (which is a velvet-imitation poly and cotton blend) causes slight melting and the ever dreaded iron stain from melty fabric.

The red frills really add a pop of colour for the eyes to go to-(red accents are something I am intrigued by this month for whatever reason. Perhaps a nod to February being the month of love?)

 

Thanks for stopping by,
