vintage aprons

4 vintage aprons for the servers of a wedding reception are finished.

Pink and yellow fabric is from Hobby Lobby.  

lace roses dress up and add a nice vintage touch . . .

 The first 2 aprons are a modified version of Simplicity #3544.  The top piece is squared up more than the pattern calls for . . .

more lace . . .

This apron is really cute on.  The design comes from this picture (so darling!).  You can't really see the scalloped edges very well in this picture like you can in the above link (note to self, strongly contrast the bias binding).  The skirt is actually 2 full pieces (for future reference).  

The next apron is made to look like this apron:

I used this tutorial to help make it.

Ties are extra wide for maximum show.  (simplicity pattern)

Back to quilting.

Last night I bought "British Numbers" from Ikea for a backing.
