Today, I'm happy to present the lovely handiwork of Scrimpalicious reader (and personal friend to the Scrimps), Jill!
As someone who is very fond of aprons myself, and as someone who is also very fond of the retro-chic craze currently sweeping the globe (shut up, it is totally sweeping the globe), I cannot get over the astounding cuteness of these two half-aprons that Jill and her friend made!
Modeling their hip new look
Jill tells me that their fabric came from Yarns & Fabrications, in West Chester, Ohio, although sadly they no longer sell fabric so even if you live in the Cincinnati area, you're going to have to look elsewhere for fabric of similar cuteness.
The patterns were taken from A Is for Apron: 25 Fresh and Flirty Designs, by Nathalie Mornu. (Link is to a Google books preview).
Jill, I'd like to thank you for sharing your lovely handiwork with the world!
Isn't she adorable?
Note: I've been told that the book with these apron patterns in it can have some pitfalls for beginning seamstresses. Here's a link to the publisher's website that offers some corrections and help with those issues.
