His & Hers

A few weeks ago I got a very unique request! A His & Hers matching apron set. I was up to the challenge! I gave the idea a bit of thought. The aprons that I design are "very" feminine and girly. The fabric that was chosen had a lot of pink flowers. So to mute the girliness (not too much though) I went with green trim and green buttons. Then I used the same green trim on the man apron, but had to make it match without adding too much flower fabric to it. At first I thought (for a sec) I would add the flower fabric as pockets, but that was still a bit too girly. A bow tie was just the thing! It was a perfect way to tie the too together. My husband Tom was my model throughout the process. (He was overjoyed lol) After a bit of adjusting and restitching, I am happy with the results! I hope that the new Mr. & Mrs. will spend many days cooking together. You know that those who cook together, stay together!

  1. Very well executed! I love how special requests make us think outside the box and expand our herizons. Way to go!
