Another apron-smock finished! It's a reverse of this one, same pattern. From same re-purposed duvet cover. Only I seamed up the back this time, and left an opening big enough so I can just slip this on over my head. Didn't put elastic in the sleeves either, just left them loose. I like how breezy and comfortable this is. I'm imagining how perfect it will be for summer days spent in the garden or in the kitchen making jam. It definitely has that casual, carefree summer vibe.

I can't tell you how much I love this type of facing. Love it. It's a facing and a bodice all in one. All so neat and tidy on the inside too. What's more, trim, lace, or rick-rack can be added as you top-stitch it into place just by sliding it underneath as you go along. Brilliant!
