Disney Tabard by Lizzy

So, rather strange request from my work colleague Nicky. Could I make her an apron or tabard to wear whilst she works in her stockroom? She did ask me months ago & I’ve put it off for a while as I’d wanted to find the right material

Found some sweet Disney princesses fabric on eBay… I knew it would be just right for our Nicky as she is obsessed with Disney!

The cerise pink fabric is a slightly heavier weight cotton, whilst a little more expensive it’s lovely to work with & will be a bit harder wearing. Previously used this fabric for Lucky pink Bye Bye cat

I did have to fussy cut the Disney fabric for the pockets, sewing the two characters together but I also lined it for added strength at same time

I used a simplicity pattern 3818A which called for bias binding around edges but I just hemmed all round. I also made my own ties to keep costs down

As a finishing touch I added a small pocket with her name on
to tell truth I’d viewed it as a bit of a joke project that would be a laugh but…
