Suddenly the lowly apron has morphed from a dowdy Fifties housewife's uniform into a hip fashion statement for the DIY generation. Aprons make ideal sewing projects for beginners because fit is not so great an issue and eye-catching print fabrics and embellishments do virtually all the work in making an apron a one-of-a-kind protective garment for crafters, gardeners, artists, and cooks. Mornu's (Cutting-Edge Decoupage) collection of 25 patterns for a variety of unique aprons (e.g., a practical artist's smock with deep pockets and a crisscross back; a frilly "Marie Antoinette" silk taffeta apron) includes clear step-by-step directions amply illustrated with color photos. A good choice for public library sewing collections.
