Refashioned

Remember this tablecloth.



Well it is now this! I finally got around to making the apron that I bought the tablecloth for. I have added some Japanese fabric for the band and I really love the fabrics work together. My sister-in-law said the apron was so pretty she would wear it as a dress. She might be able to get away with it, but I'll just stick to the kitchen with this one.



I have been wanting to make a flattering, pretty apron for such a long time and I am so happy with how it turned out.



We are all enjoying our school holidays with my parents visiting. So you might not hear from us for a week or so. Cheers.

VERY NICE!! :) Now I have another idea to use old tablecloths for. Last week I made a cool skirt out of a circular cloth - pic on my blog. Very neat!

Fab refashion, Tamara! I even like how the contrast fabric on the ties matches up with the binding. Very pretty!

Love the pretty apron. I remember feeling that way about my young ones too, but actually I am now enjoying them being a bit older. I didn't think I would say that, but it's true.

I too cut up vintage tablecloths and remake them into new things. I think your apron is simply too beautiful to be true! Lovely and flattering!
