I have a different sort of Metamorphosis to share this Monday. This is a collection of vintage linens I got for a steal a few weeks ago at Shupps Grove Antique Market.
In this collection is an old torn apron that I loved for the style. It's the blue apron with red flowers. Great old fabric isn't it? I used this old apron as a pattern and transformed it into this.Don't you just love the fabric? It was designed by Diane Knotts for Clothworks Fabrics. She is a wiz at fabric design and has just released a new line for fall. You can see it here on her blog.
The neckline has little cut-out loops that I lined with brown binding as I did all around the apron. I changed the pocket and made it deeper so I could keep my phone in it.
What I really loved about this apron is the back. There is a large panel with loops to run the ties through and it keeps it nicely in place so it doesn't shift around on you. I have been sewing all my life and I am finding that I love making and wearing aprons. They seem to be Hot right now too.
