To complete my reputation as an occasional throwback to the 50′s, here is the apron I made today.
I’ve been wanting a 50′s style apron – full skirted and so on – for awhile. It finally occurred to me that I had a dress that didn’t fit well – too high waisted for a bust as full as mine – but when cut down, it would make a fantastic apron.
And it does! I even lined the skirt. And it’s hanging on my dressmaker’s dummy, in the snug, with my newly-rearranged furniture, surrounded by the other crafty things I love.
It’s been a good weekend.
