Apron à la Amy

Just finished this fashion apron from the Amy Butler 
(two separate links - the first one is pure candy.)
It's really just an excuse to see all these great fabrics close together.
From the top down: Anna Maria Horner (that will be the A-line skirt underneath the apron - yet to be sewn); Kaffe Fassett; Amy Butler (love this Japanese meisen-inspired stuff!); Kaffe Fasset; Amy Butler.  A delicious fabric salad, that sat in my cupboard for way too long, until the other day I suddenly started cutting,
then sewing,
with growing excitement until the final topstitching.

It's a very clear and well-written pattern, easy yet thorough.
Here's the reverse side:
It was a bit windy when I was trying to model this on the roof, but it shows both sides at once.
