A vintage inspired apron

I would like to share an apron I made in 2010 when I could still sew a bit.
Now I cannot sew because of back problems
maybe never again so I thought I would share this apron.

I just loved making it and entered it in quite a few local agricultural shows in the district.
It did very well and got quite a few first place cards.

The pattern for this vintage inspired apron is from Australian Handmade magazine.

All the fabrics used are from the
Leanika range
Dena Fishbein

Detail of lined pocket

Side view on my dressmaker's dummy

Bib detail.
I inserted ricrac
into a tuck
sewed another row below the tuck.
I then hand embroidered each row of ricrac.
