Okay, there’s a new uniform plan afoot. The following two pictures are of the Laurel, by Colette Patterns. I have plans this summer to make two dresses and two tops, but with a cute “small ruffle” variation and no pockets on the dress, and this will comprise the core of my new uniform. The dresses/shirts will be in the same material, most likely a neutral, and I will get some black pants to wear with the shirts and black leggings to wear with the dresses. But the exciting part will be that I will also sew a fun apron to wear over the ensemble!
I already wear an apron at work. Because there are not reliable pockets in womens’ clothing, early on I adopted the basic three-pocket waitress apron to hold my work walkie talkie, keys and a few pens. But I’ve decided to break out of the boring three-pocket apron and make some very cool ones to go with my uniform. So I’ve been doing apron research. You can come along with me.
