Lauren and Vanessa Master the Hostess Apron: Make It

Back in November, we at The Make Den were lucky enough to have two fabulous instructors join our team! Lauren and Vanessa have been a blast to have around the studio and have already taught a ton of students how to sew.

Both Lauren and Vanessa started as Make Den students who excelled in all of their classes. Before they started teaching, we hung out to go over one of our favourite sewing projects – the hostess apron! The video tutorial “Make It: How to Sew an Apron” was an excellent resource to help them master this cute and impressive project.

The makers had a choice between two styles of the apron skirt. Lauren opted for pleats, while Vanessa decided on gathers. Both yielded excellent results!

Mitered corners can be tricky, but with the help of Woven Wolf instructor, Darcie, and a bit of teamwork, the end results were crisp and clean.

Darcie led us step by step to create a couple of gorgeous, handmade garments. These lovely ladies are now protected from spills and splatter in the kitchen. Making all their culinary adventures worry free, and stylish!
