Indygo Junction Bistro Apron

It's Wedding Season, and my wedding shower gift for the happy couple was a pair of  Indygo Junction Bistro Aprons (along with a waffle iron :-),  floral for her, green for him.

Fabric from JoAnn Fabrics, pattern purchased at the 2016 ASG Detroit Chapter's annual meeting last Fall, when Amy Barickman was the guest speaker.

Love my new labels from Dutch Label Shop!

Simplicity 1100 - a Jiffy pattern throw-back

     Are you looking for quick, easy and fun to wear dress/swimsuit cover up for this summer?
                      Look no further....Simplicity 1100 might be the pattern for you!

This pattern is a re-issue from one published in 1971, and shows that good design can stand
                   the test of time. What's not to love? Wrap and tie.....ready to go!

My son and daughter-in-law will spending some time at a ocean side resort in Greece this summer, 
                and I thought she might like a little something to take along. For some reason,
                                   this fabric just shouted resort wear to me :-)

The fabric is a drapey rayon from JoAnn Fabrics, perfect for this pattern, and rolls up to next to nothing
         for packing.  I know, it looks a little long....still needs to be hemmed to my DIL's height.  

                                   Best thing of DIL loved it!
