For a Wednesday refashion, we made another skirt to apron transformation! For this one we started with two skirts, and you may recognize them as being the same ones we used for the fabric silhouette in our ebook. (Don’t worry, it’s coming soon! We’re in the editing process, then we’ll have some beta testers try it on for size, then we’ll get it published! Try it on for size…get it? Every project in the ebook starts with a skirt! Sometimes we just crack ourselves up!) Okay, where were we before we starting making punny jokes? Oh yes, today’s refashion!
This one was a cute Old Navy girl’s skirt we got from Goodwill for $1.25.
Step by step skirt to apron tutorial instructions:
Step 1: Cut off from of flowered skirt.
Step 2: Iron over 1/4 inch on edges.
Step 3: Cut out rectangle of contrasting skirt.
Step 4: Sew lace onto pocket in V shape. (We wanted to mimic the shape of the existing trim around the hem.)
Step 5: Iron over 1/4 inch on edges of pocket
Step 6: Sew pocket onto flowered skirt.
Step 7: Sew edges of apron, sewing in ribbon ties at top edges!
Now what do you think? Isn’t that just the sweetest apron ever? We love the pocket, and we love the vintage look of it. You can’t see the ribbon ties in the photos, but they are a sweet, gauzy ribbon about 1/4 inch wide. Maybe we should go into making aprons full time! Nah, skirts are too fun, but an apron is a good variation every once in a while.
