We interviewed Miki about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
It is a very solid fabric. As the design is spread apart, I thought something large would make more of an impact for French bulldog fans than a small item, so I came up with an apron idea. The solid fabric will also make it last longer.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
I created the pattern using my everyday apron as a reference. To expedite the process, store-bought tape is used in lieu of creating the strap from the fabric.

KF: What are some tips for making this Apron?
The important point in the process of making this reversible apron is sewing all the parts together. In order to put them together securely, the tapes are basted first. For a clean finish, iron the corner prior to sewing.

KF: How should we use this apron in everyday situations?
As it is getting colder, this reversible apron will keep you warm. In addition to using it as an apron, you can also wear it as room wear with a pair of leggings. A matching scrunchy will allow you to enjoy it as part of your overall style.

Next, attach the parts. Since it is reversible, the fabric is layered with the front sides facing each other. Place the parts on top of one of the fabrics and baste them with the thread to secure.
After basting, place all the parts facing inward and layer the other fabric with the front sides facing each other. Baste all the way around using an iron-on tape. Sew all the way around with a 20cm opening at the hem for turning.
