Finally, here are the matching dresses I made for the my little ladies for my sister's wedding as seen in this post. I've made this pattern numerous times, and while I was tempted to try something new for the occasion, I knew this was a safe bet that would sew up quick and show off the large print. I left the elastic out of the sleeves for a fluttery effect, and lengthened Oona's a bit as the girls' got long legs, and I wanted it to last a bit longer.
The fabric is by illustrator Teagan White and part of the "Fort Firefly" collection by Birch Fabrics. I was lucky to get it during a big summer sale at Fabric Worm. It seemed the perfect fabric for two illustrators getting married in the evening. Oona says that they are butterflies, but I believe it's moths and lightening bugs. The lace was supposed to be used on my wedding dress, which I never finished, but that's a story for another time. I think it gave it just the right amount of fancy for a country wedding.
I ordered the star fabric on a lark, not intending to use the two together, but when I saw how perfectly it complimented the "Fort Firefly" fabric, I knew it was meant to be.
And so these reversible aprons were born.... a simple self-drafted pattern. They have a large pocket on the star side. Each girl has one in the compliment of her dress, and I hope they will have fun wearing them for lots of cooking experiments and magic spells to come!
