Get Your Craft On! APRIL

so Aprons…… Mine is a smock-style made with a vintage pillow case and Dumpling’s is a sort of retro house-wife cut made with the front half of an A-line skirt I didn’t wear anymore. For both, I did a flickr search for retro aprons, found some I liked and pretty much made it up formthere. I find that having the mannequins really helps. I took nots on how the Project Runway people pin ribbon to the mannequins to figure out the shapes of their pieces and that’s how I figured out my armholes, neckbands, etc.

Here they are, step by step, in pictures.

I’m still repurposing, recycling, as per last month’s GYCO.

It clearly said Aprons. Plural.
