Perhaps while spring cleaning, you found a frightening amount of fabric hidden away. I know I sure did! I’ve got fabric squares precut by my grandma, a whole slew of samples from my aunt who runs a quilt shop, a foot or two from when my other aunt lived in Japan and sent back great prints, and then the yards and yards of baby/kid fabric that I may never get around to. We have decided to put your fabric coffers as well as ours to good use, and are sharing this waist-only apron pattern!
The apron has large pockets which make it perfect for gardening, cooking, and crafting. Lately I’ve been wearing the same dress day after day because it has one great pocket in the front that is the perfect size for scissors and trowels, but this dress needs a break!
A waist-only apron is the kind of thing I imagine women in the sixties wore, and that vintagey feel is something I can’t get enough of. It’s also a great piece that doesn’t hide your cute outfit, but adds to it. Boring tee-shirt and sweats? Disguise the sweats with the apron tied around your waist, and allow the ties to cinch in the tee-shirt. Talk about a step up! With a cute apron in a pattern of your choosing, you don’t even have to put on real clothes to feel cute.
