My granddaughter, Shailey, is turning eight this month. Her mom is making her a cute little retro kitchen from an entertainment center. You can check it out at easy peasy pie, it's super cute! I thought it would be fun to make her an apron. I started with a .75 cent secondhand maternity top. I thought the fabric looked kind of retro and it would also go with the colors of the new kitchen.
I cut the front away from the back, including the sleeves,
and also cut a curve on the bottom of the apron.
I used the fabric from the back to cut strips for the ties and pockets for the front. The back of the blouse had elastic gathers, so I incorporated that into the tops of the pockets.
The ties feed through a casing and go up around the neck, making them adjustable. I used part of another blouse to cut and gather strips for a ruffle around the edge of the apron.
Hopefully, Shailey will like it!
