I thought it would be fun to tackle an iconic apron for this next theme—Alice in Wonderland.
You can't really see the apron/pinafore here, but I love her facial expression in this tea party illustration so much—I had to show it anyway.
Here's another version. Very nice shoulder and pocket detail on this apron.
Of course you can interpret this apron how ever you wish, but I would like to suggest that the apron be:
- white, or some approximation of white
- in a pinafore/full apron style, if you are up for that
That means there is a bib and skirt attached. If you want to go with just a half apron, that's okay, but pinafores/full apron are very fun to do, so if you haven't done one, this would be a great time to try. Feel free to link to patterns you all might have to use in the comments. A vintage style pattern, either actual vintage or a reproduction, in white would look lovely. And please have fun with the details! I don't want you all to be bored by this. It has a ton of creative potential.
Please send me a jpeg (with your blog link if you have one and any other info you want me to add) by May 1st.
I have no idea if an apron makes an appearance on Alice in Tim Burton's upcoming film, but I will be seeing it probably the day it opens, nonetheless.
And thank you for all the Black and White aprons! I am starting on the gallery now and will have it up (and announce the lucky random winner of the book giveaway) later in the week. Thank you all so much!!
