I had a very hard time doing it justice with my camera!  This apron was made with a very, very old, delicate, linen table cloth ~ the end of an embroidered dresser scarf ~ a vintage napkin and a touch of rick rack.  Nothing new was sewn into this {except thread!}~

  2. Elaine! I would have a hard time bringing myself to wear this while cooking! I mean, it is SO BEAUTIFUL, the thought of chicken grease and marinara sauce spoiling it up makes me sad! Such pretty aprons!
