Skirt to aprons: Refashion

In August I turned a skirt I hadn’t worn in a couple years into two aprons, one for me and one for my mom.  I originally bought the skirt to wear to a friend’s wedding when I was 21, although I ended up wearing another new dress to the event instead.  Come to think of it, that dress has been hiding in the back of my closet for several years too, I should try it on and see if I can put it back in wardrobe rotation or refashion it into something else.   Apparently I don’t have a Before picture of the red skirt even though I remember taking one in my sewing room, hm.  Maybe later I’ll find it and add it in.  (Ha!)

The apron I decided to keep for myself has a classy black & white waistband that I realized afterward that I cut with the pattern sideways, and the one for my mom has a waistband featuring chickens.  It’s the same fabric I used to make her Chickens II quilt later, actually.

    That’s right. I could wear the festive red when Tim etc. come Tuesday. Having spinach lassagne for dinner with choc. cheesecake and salad with goat cheese crumbles, and veggie soup (made the veggie broth stock already too) and popovers for lunch. No meat for exactly a year now. Chicken tie strings are good 🙂
