50s Chic Apron

I designed and created this 50s style apron as a custom order for a friend.  I think it turned out super cute!!

It has a sweetheart neckline, with darts on the bust (so it doesn’t gape open) and a circle cut skirt.  It was so fun to make the pattern.  I’m thinking about writing out the pattern and selling it for $5 as a PDF download.  I think it would make a great Christmas or birthday present for moms and best friends.  Another nice think it is only uses 1.5 yards of fabric, so you can make it for pretty cheap.

I made a sweet little rosette pin, which can be worn with the apron or used to embellish another item.

The sun is shining today (a rarity, it seems, for Seattle) so I’m all inspired to finish a beach quilt I’ve been working on for a shameful amount of time….once that sun goes down I’m going to get to work making the binding and getting it finished.

Hope you all have a blessed Saturday!
