This apron was so fun to make. I pulled the fabric from my stash because I thought it was pretty, but I had no idea what I was going to do with it. So I piled up fabric with similar patterns and colors, vintage hankies, vintage lace of all sizes and vintage buttons. I wish I had taken a picture of the table! One by one, I chose each element, and when I was done I saw an apron.
I used four vintage hankies cut in half diagonally and gathered at the waist. Each one is different and each one is trimmed in beautiful lace.
The ties are white roses, leaves and vines on a sweet pink background. It is the perfect compliment to the pink roses on front of the apron.
The bottom is trimmed in a double row of gathered vintage lace that has the perfect pink edging. Vintage mother of pearl buttons line the top edge of the lace.
I waited all week for the sun to shine so I could get some good pictures, but it didn't happen. I was just too impatient to wait any longer to show you my newest creation!
