Vintage Apron

 Life has become increasingly busy with the new school year and I find myself very consumed with all kinds of work! I need to fit in more sewing time but I am not sure how I will do this. 

Anyways, sorry if you've already heard this story on instagram, but I am going to repeat it! I read a great book, "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up", and it inspired me to just get rid of stuff. I got rid of so much that I didn't really care about that was just sitting around, including aprons I had. 

Then I read another great book, "Lessons From Madame Chic", where it explains that one should wear their nicest clothes every day, even if they are a stay at home mother like myself. They should just wear and apron to keep their clothes nice while they are doing chores. Seems basic but I never saw this as a child so it didn't occur to me until I read the book! 

 I wanted something with cute ruffles and I thought one of these patterns would work!

I love how it turned out! The pop of green binding is nice in my opinion. I admit the straps are a bit wonky in this picture but no worries! I took them off and readjusted them to a better angle.
