how to sew… a retro apron part4: straps to top, top facing and trying it on



happy new year! I hope you all have a wonderful year 2017!

Here are the next steps for my retro apron. The first steps can be found here: part1, part2, and part3


before I added the top facing


I needed to add the straps to the top, to be sure I add them in the right angle I placed them at the top, the way it is supposed to look later

dscf8256 then folded it over and pinned it in placedscf8257

and pinned the facing right side on the right side on top


and sewed around, starting and ending at the end of the seam of the skirt parts to top part


and serged all around


now I turned the right side out


and pinned the ends of the straps in place


those buttons would fit well…


luckily I put it on to test the fit and noticed the straps are to long

I hope this was helpful for you! If you have any questions about this project so far, do not hesitate to ask!

The next and final steps will be uploaded next week.

Keep sewing and smiling
