a wonderful pattern by Christina from The Sometimes Crafter. I always wanted to do some box pleats so i finally did and it wasn´t too hard. however, i altered the pattern right at the pleats: the pattern just asks for folding and sewing your solid fabric.
instead i used some of the colorful Heather Bailey Pop Garden fabric as lining. This did shine through the very small gap you (well,at least i) get at the upper part of the pleats, so i had to cheat there: i inserted an little strip of the Essex solid i used and now the colors are just visible in the lower part of the pleats.
the ties of this apron are very long, they are intended to be binded at the front which looks very sweet. i also like the little towel loop which is inserted in the waistband-seam - it should be very handy.
the pattern was very easy to follow (well, i had to read some parts three times but then i am no native english speaker) and what i really like a lot, too, is that Christina explicitly allows sewers to sell items at on- or offline markets - this is very nice of her!
you can get the pattern at her etsy-shop. enjoy!
