Denim Apron Love!-Sally July 5, 2007

Filed under: apron,denim,sewing — rustedrhubarb @ 2:25 pm

This was fun to make!  I had started out making a full front apron (half skirt along with bib), and half way through the process of creating ( I follow no directions.. I just create) I decided that I didn’t like the look of the bib part and cut it off and decided the full apron was going to become a half apron instead!  In this piece I used an old denim jumper dress, commercial fabric that I over-dyed, and vintage velvet trim.  When I created this piece I left some edges unfinished, such as the apron strings and part of the vintage trim.  My hope and goal for this piece is to become more aged and loved-in during the process of wearing and in the wash.  This little vintage gem has a great pocket on the left side!
