I finally finished the apron. I picked up 1 yard of this fabric this summer in California - it was in the remains basket in one of the fabric shops.. The selvage says "Suburbia Screen Print D#10917 www.robertkaufman.com".
I thought it would be perfect for an apron:
In our house cooking is split. Mr T does savoury things and I make sweets. So we needed either two aprons or one apron that fits both of us. I went for the second option without realizing this fabric is in fact really pink...
To cut the fabric, I eyeballed a curve between the top and the middle section. I don't know what made me do this. A straight line would have been a better choice. But what's done is done :) I used a blue fabric for pockets and I also used it for _quite_ugly_ makeshift bias tape. It's not real bias tape and it didn't end up looking great but it works for an apron.
To make it fit both of us I used buttons on top. I put the first pair on top where you would expect and the second pair a bit lower to fit me as well. The neck strap has two buttons holes: one made with the machine and another one "just in case" which was made by attaching the blue fabric to the cooking fabric on the sides only - the top is left opened and thus the buttons can go through.
I finished the straight lines with turned over seams, similar to jeans. I wasn't sure how wide to make them so I just sewed where I thought it would work. I think they're a bit wide, but with the contrasting thread it doesn't look too bad.
I didn't hem the apron - I left the bottom selvage. I might in the future as it is a bit long for me.
This is what it looks like on Mr T:
And on me:
