New aprons and an interview.

Hooray for new aprons!!!

Cars full apron

The new aprons should be up in the Pretty Ditty shop this evening. There may be one more apron to add to the shop, but I can't make any promises. It's been a little criz-naizy (crazy for those of you who aren't fluent in gangsta) around here. Can you believe Christmas is like a month in a half away? This year I really wanted to make a bunch of handmade gifts for friends and family, but I'm thinking I'm just going to have to buy handmade gifts by way of Etsy.

So, before I run off and try to finish one more apron, I did want to tell you to go check out the True Up blog. There is an interview with moi (I believe moi is me in French. Although, I've been told certain words mean one thing in Spanish and then came to find out they don't!!!) about Phat Fabric.

Adios amigos!

By chance I ended up finding your aprons on Etsy. I have to tell you, they are awesome! I work with textile installations, using a retro 50s theme. Are your aprons from that era or later?

Pretty Ditty said...

Thank you for the compliments.

Suchil - I would have to say kind of yes =). When I first designed my Lola apron, I wanted something that would fit around the waist, with an Asian flair (believe it or not). That would explain the original 5 inch thick waist band. I then wanted a full skirt (50's style). I would like to make the apron skirt even fuller, but that would mean more material which ups the price. The top was designed with childhood sundresses in mind, and I wanted it to fit various bust sizes. That's the short answer =)

Thanks for the quesiton. I love shop talk.

I've been out of the loop for a while and what is this about an interview? Is it still available to check out and where?

Jamie,

I answered my own question, never you mind me. Like I said I've been out of the loop and apprently that made me a little loopy. Congrats on that interview!

I really like your idea of a reversible apron. You Smarty!

I know this may be embarrassing (my level of skill in comparison to yours) but you inspired me. Look what I did.

They're reversible and SEWN (i've got mad stitch witchery skills but we're steppin' up to THE machine.)

They are so super-sexy. I need more money so I can have one for each day of the week, I'd even wear one to go pick up some take-away, or doing the groceries :)

I'd LOVE to have one of these as a full skirt - dress. Have you ever thought of making them into dresses? Is it something I could special order?
