Aprons I've sent out the past couple of weeks

Here's the aprons I've sent out to partners in the past two swaps I've been in.  Both are using a halter apron pattern.

The only difference is - instead of using bias tape around the halter like on the top apron, I lined the halter section on the bottom apron.  I don't know why, but I'm not a fan of applying bias tape, and I'd rather use more fabric than use bias tape!  I ended up cutting the pattern pieces a bit bigger for a seam allowance and I love the way it turned out.  I also cut the ties twice as wide, to sew it together and turn it - much easier than turning under all around and top stitching.
