Pink and Green Apron

We were visiting my brother and sister in law in Edmonton one weekend when she happened to mention that she wished she had an apron.  Since I had just started sewing at that point, I decided I'd try and make her one.  This was my second major sewing project, and being a novice sewer it was quite a lot to take on for me.  I was doing ok with it all until the waistband pattern piece and fabric disappeared.  I blame Cleo.  I got discouraged and put it on my shelf for a few months.  I then made this apron and thought I could give it to her instead, but she said that she wanted something with a top part because her new baby kept spitting up on her.  So I thought I should just finish this apron, since I was 98% done it already, and it was going to go to her in the first place.  I decided I could figure out the size and shape of the waistband on my own, so I did.  And I finished the apron!
What's going on with my finger?!

Here's the skirt:

It's a shame that all these pleats are hidden underneath!

I'm not 100% happy with the hand stitching on the collar, but it's on the underside, and no one is really going to look at it anyway.
I wrapped it all up and it's ready to be gifted!  I'll be seeing my sis in law this weekend and will give it to her then.  Hopefully she likes it!
