I've had the Emmeline Apron pattern for years, but finally had a good reason to sew it up. It only took about four hours including cutting, so I think there's one in my near future as well. I probably agonized over the fabric choices for longer than that...
I don't remember much about the construction -- another drawback of putting off posting for so long! -- so I assume it went together pretty easily.

I did not do the hand sewing as recommended in the pattern, and if I make it as a gift again, I would. You can see the wonky machine stitching in the above photo where the waistband meets the side binding.
I love that it's reversible -- I'm a messy cook!
I wanted to make something for the groom also, since the bride usually gets most of the goodies at showers. He's a big Badger fan, so I used a blank apron from Hobby Lobby and appliqued on the Wisconsin W.
