A couple weeks ago my daughter was spending the night at a friend's house and I found myself home alone and bored so I decided to make an apron out of some fabric I had recently found packed away in a box. This fabric is a little sentimental to me...when my daughter was about 3 years old I made Mother-Daughter matching dresses with this fabric. Now I look at it and can't imagine myself actually wearing this but back then it was in style. Lauren cringes every time I tell her we had matching dresses!
I added some old lace to the pocket and around the bottom. The rose I made a few years ago out of ribbon. If I had a sewing or craft room I would sew a lot more often. I am so messy when I sew. I end up with thread, pins and fabric everywhere even when I tell myself before I start that I'm not going to make a mess!
These are very similar to the patterns I used for our mother/daughter dresses. Mine was a drop waist and my daughter's was a classic jumper style. I sure wish I had pictures of us in those. I remember we went out for Mother's Day brunch wearing them. It seemed cute at the time but now I'm wondering...WHAT WAS I THINKING?!! Funny how things change. I almost always wear solid colors now and can't even imagine wearing anything floral (except for an apron).
