to use while pretending to work
i wanted an apron, but didn't want to leave to get a pattern (!) so i made this up instead. it was a little blocky, so i added the center pleat and that made a big difference. i added two buttonholes on each side so as to cinch the waist but what a pain to try to thread them through, so oh well. the main fabric is from the wonderful denyse schmidt's katy jump rope, the others i can't remember except the circle pattern came from the local thrift shop. i think it's very cheery, though i realized two things not so cheery: i need to lose some weight AND clean my mirrors!
