Silk Hostess Apron

I saw an adorable hostess apron on the web and thought I would try to recreate it as a gift for a good friends birthday. I created the pattern by drawing a 1/4 circle on a sheet of butcher paper to the size I wanted an then placing it on the fold before cuttign it out (repeated for the back lining) 
I made extra wide ties (6 inches) and then folded it over right sides facing each other and then sewed along the seam and turned it inside out. I created the bias tape by cutting a piece of silk fabric 2 inches wide and then ironing it see here for an awesome tutorial. I love making my own bias tape because you get exactly what you want and its cheaper than buying the packaged ones!
This is more of a serving and decorative apron than a cooking/get messy apron but adorable either way.
