A {new} vintage apron ~


This was made completely with vintage fabrics.

apron close-upI was able to get another apron made yesterday.  These are fun for me to make because I don’t have to work with a real pattern with instructions (there is nothing about working through instructions that I find relaxing).  When I make these {vintagy} aprons I gather together a few vintage pieces that work well together and then decide what kind of apron would work best.  I had a Starbucks apron lying around so I used that to cut this one out.    The piece of embroidery is from a dresser scarf.  The first half {actually, 1/3~I have the middle of it left) of this was sewn into this apron.

I pulled Mergie out for this photo – I was getting tired of using those skinny-girl mannequins – {I think I’m feeling a little sensitive about that subject (skinny) right now} – She, although short (as was my great grandma), is a little more real-to-life in size.
