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.


  1. That is the cutest stylish apron ever! I love the fabric that you used for it too.

  2. Goodness, that is one incredibly charming apron. The frills are like cheerful smiles that speak of the past (when aprons were far more commonplace), while providing a handy service (keeping your clothes clean) in the present. Beautiful creation, dear gal.

    Big hugs & joyful start of October wishes,
