what i see: a USUK AU where Arthur is being a typical house-wife for Alfred; making him breakfast/lunch/dinner, up-keeping the house all the time, does both of their laundry/dishes/chores, and is overall representing the stay-at-home wife role because he is victim to what society thinks the submissive one in a same-sex marriage should be- thus falling into the same stereotypical gender roles as other heterosexual wives to keep the gays in line
what i want to see: a USUK AU where Arthur is fully aware of the gender roles in society; but tries to break those gender roles by cooking, cleaning, doing feminine activities (like wearing pink frilly aprons & knitting/sewing), and taking care of Alfred anyways because he genuinely wants to do so & actually enjoys his interests- all while still having a semi-masculine personality- and also Alfred helps out and tries to keep the chores even as best as he can, while supporting his husband’s feminine activities/habits 1000% and loves him no matter what (besides, Alfred loves Arthur in his favorite pink frilly apron & it’s hella cute)
I used to work at a fabric store for two years and it was the end for me. I had a fabric addiction and was in no mood to stop. While working there we had to supply our own aprons. I went through so many, so as a result I just made a ton. I got so used to making them that I don’t have to use a pattern anymore.
These are only a few of the ones I have in my store, which will be live by friday 12/17/16
This style is $12.00
They are great for crafting and creating. They have short pockets that are still able to hold things such as pens, phones and other small objects.
I will delete these when I have proper photos (whenever that may be) but I finally finished making my apron, using a fabric I designed and had printed!!! It needs to be ironed but whatever I just finished it and it only took me 3 days so I’m excited
@pepperqt / @peppersupreme and I created a figurine of our dear Bismuth for @relatablepicturesof-bismuth‘s Bismuth week! We made her out of fimo clay and painted a bit too, the apron I sewed and it is removable.
Just finished the apron dress (hence the fabric scraps still on the floor), learned a few new seams in the process. Forgot to make hidden pockets 😔. (Yes, the sole purpose of making this was to have something to attach my viking bling to) Will wear with the stompiest boots!!!!
So remember how I was kind of worried about my brother turning into a spoiled shit? Well, he’s still kind of preoccupied with “stuff” but was also incredibly psyched about the books I bought him and told me the (Rick and Morty lord help us) sweatshirt I also gifted him was “the very best.” He was very sweet and as he got a little tired later in the evening he curled up with me like he used to: wrapped around my arm.
He sewed E an apron (it’s legit great and stylish) and made me a pair of earrings and a bracelet. The bracelet has tons of different colored beads so it will “match all kinds of outfits.”
ok wolf is definitely way too big to wear one of scarlets aprons so at what point did he go “scarlet when i can i get one of those cooking shirt covers” and scarlet just kind of sewed two aprons together and wolf has never been happier about a piece of clothing and wears his mismatched two different floral patterned apron with so much pride
“She was[…] dressed like an Edwardian maid, complete with a starched white bib apron over a full black skirt and a white cotton blouse.[…] Despite her mob cap she wore her hair loose, a black curtain that fell to her waist.”
