This apron is for someone who is NOT all about rick rack. Not one trace of rick rack on it. It is a tailored half apron with a pleated ruffle. I topstitched all of the seams so it would have the touch of a tailored shirt. I darted the top of the apron skirt and did a very unique tie. Thinner women can wrap the apron, abundantly blessed women can just fasten it in the back! I am really pleased with this design!!
Wanted to see if I could make an apron that would fit a plus size and/or a small size out of a mens small shirt. Well, I did it.. This one will fit a skinny minny up to an abundantly blessed farmgirl like myself. I am really becoming obsessed with this repurposing!! I did also figure out how to get a full apron, but chose to do a half apron with a ruffle instead. This is another short sleeved shirt. I had to get out my seam ripper to conserve fabric and get every usable inch of fabric from this shirt. Thought I would show you the left over pile after I was done. The piping package is there as a size reference point.
The total cost?
Well not including thread...which I already had, it cost me a grand total of: 54 cents!!
Not bad! It is a 100% cotton Sonoma shirt. Well, is that JCPenney or Target? Can't remember! LOL
Well, NO sewing tomorrow. My house is a disaster and I MUST cook for my family tomorrow and paint my kitchen. I did get lots and lots of sewing done today!! Looking forward to sewing Kim's handfasting dress next week!!!
Thanks for blogging with me tonight.
