Soiree de Jardin Apron

Soiree de Jardin Apron

Designer and Instructor~Holly Stinnett
Saturday, August 22, 2009 11:00a-4:00p
Workshop fee: $85.00 


The simplest of silhouettes and very minimal sewing is the secret to this showpiece!  With zero measuring and no need for a pattern, even those who have only sewn a button will be developing like real designers!  Holly will show you her fun and easy steps to creating your one-of-a-kind fashion couture apron that is sure to be a show stopper. She'll share special techniques on fraying fabric, making vintage-like yoyos and fabric flowers, creating leaves out of vintage dotted Swiss fabric and fashioning ribbon borders.


You will receive a beautiful kit consisting of pre-cut coordinating fabric and floral hanky, beautiful vintage and new hand selected decorative buttons for embellishing,  gorgeous eyelet ruffle, vintage ribbon, lace, crochet  appliqués and a beautiful brooch to add sparkle. Each kit will be slightly different so no two designs will end up the same, allowing each artist to discover her own inner-designer and walk away with a true original!


*Please note that the apron sashes will be pre-sewn and Holly will be available to help sew the actual body of the apron if needed.  This will allow more time for creative embellishing and “play time!”  Flower, yoyo and leaf shapes will also be precut.  I’ll also have extra fabric available to add different colors/patterns if you so choose.


Supply List:

(Holly will have these supplies on hand as well)

Needle and threads in white or cream and various cheery colors

Fabric scissors

Tiny embroidery scissors for easy snipping

Favorite buttons or beads if you want to incorporate your own special elements

Don’t forget your readers if you wear them!
