Country Apron

This week, I whipped up this full apron for a friend's birthday. I based it on a one-yard apron pattern from an old book, just like these. There are four main pieces: the yoke, the front and two side pieces.

The pattern called for using bias binding to finish the edges and pockets on the sides. I chose to make mine reversible, skip the binding and place one pocket on the center front. I also adapted the yoke piece to a shape more to my liking and used tie ends instead of the binding.
The fabric is a little fussier than I usually choose but isn't it pretty? Just irresistible. The kind of thing one should wear while canning.
