Introducing… Ricky!

Earlier this week, I was trying to remember the name of the vintage apron pattern I’d downloaded onto my hard drive. I was sure it was Ricky but it wasn’t…it was Ripply. As I wrote yesterday, I didn’t read the instructions when I sewed up this little cutie and so I think it’s different enough from the original to change the name a little bit.

And so I’d like to introduce my newest apron, Ricky!


So what did I change in my eagerness to avoid reading the instructions?

Well, the biggest difference is that the waistband is on upside-down. Also, there is one small pleat on each side of the apron instead of the original two. No pockets (although I did cut out the pieces, I decided not to use them). And, finally, I made the ties from bias tape.


I think this little number is cutecutecute! The photo might not convey it well but it looks very much like a sexy little apron one might wear at a cocktail party.

I like it!
