These aprons are taking WAY longer than I thought! First of all, despite my previous delusions, making seven aprons was never going to be fast. Secondly, my machine is trying to sabatoge me by skipping stiches and breaking threads right and left despite changing needles, adjusting tension, etc. Third, I'm having weird gapping issues in the bib of the apron. It will not lay flat! Who knew I would have fitting issues on an apron! I only have one completely finished, the rest are complete except for the red piece on top and the bias tape on the sides, so I can still play with the straps to try to fix this problem, but I'm not totally sure what to do. Thoughts anyone?

So ready to get these done so I can go back to sewing things for me! Speaking of, adding another thing to the list of birthday presents I'm buying myself this year:

Hi, your apron is cute. It looks like maybe if you moved the neck straps inward it might lay flatter?

Your apron looks really cute. I have made quite a few aprons, and some of them do gape like that. I think part of it is just the design, they're simply not made to fit very closely. I agree to try to move the straps inward somewhat. Have you tried pressing the heck out of it to try to coax it not to bend? Sorry I'm not of more help.
