[ImageSew Chic's Clara Bow Apron by pinkerpawsnpals, on Flickr]

I'm making this apron. The embroidered linen (cotton/linen?) is for the bib. It is actually a little brighter than it photographed. I have an almost solid pink, sort of marble-y, that I can use for the contrast strip and bow. But I am wondering about using organdy instead for the strip and bow, and constructing a bow, rather than tying one since I'm not a very good bow tie-er! The organdy would likely allow the embroidery to show through just a bit. So, any thoughts on organdy here?
