There is something special about a mama wearing an apron. Just ask my three year old.
"Mom - is dat your special apwin?" "Yes, honey, it is." "Mom - what is your apwin for??" (He smiles, because he knows exactly what my answer will be.) "It's for mommy to bake some special cookies for her special little boy." (Big smile accompanied by a big hug: ) "Mom - I wike your apwin! It's pwitty!"
I've been having more than a little fun sewing up a few vintage-inspired aprons, lately. There are so many lovely little details in those old-fashioned patterns, and they are so much fun to wear! In the aprons pictured here, I upcycled the fabric from a gently used duvet cover and a Tommy Hilfiger skirt, both found at a thrift store.

I had a hard time finding a way to take a photo of the entire apron by itself, especially showing the cute poofy bows in the back, so I will have to try and find a used dress-form, somewhere, for any future apron pics!

Can't wait to get started on the next one!
