My sister-in-law, among her many talents, does a lot of crafts very well, including sewing. For Christmas, I’d asked her for an apron, because I wanted something to protect my work clothes while I made breakfast. I knew she’d come up with something attractive and functional… but I had no idea she, my brother, and KC would all conspire to make this!
She designed and made the whole thing. My brother drew the logo and came up with the idea to make the pockets look like those famous bracelets. Both the belt and the pockets are shiny metallic, while the rest of the fabric is double-layered for sturdiness and function. The belt continues into long ties around the waist. I’m astounded she found the star-spangled fabric that works so well for the skirt.
It’s truly amazing, and the only problem is… I’m afraid to use it! I don’t want to mess it up, because it’s so cool. Truly a wonderful Christmas gift!
