shirt to apron

Here’s the third shirt from last week’s garage sale purchases. These big, flouncy shirts came in style right after I had my daughter and I refused to buy any. I had just gotten out of maternity clothes. I didn’t want to buy shirts that made me look pregnant!

I really liked the band around the middle and thought it would make a nice apron. I love how this already had the ribbon and trim details. All I had to do was cut it up and add the sashes!

I’m not really an apron girl, but this just might make me change my mind. I just need to get over worrying about getting it dirty. I know, it’s an apron, but it’s so darn cute!

refashion: Shirt from garage sale cost $1. Sash made from the sleeves. Cute ribbon trim conveniently part of the original shirt. Love when that happens!

    OMG! U r my new hero! How fabulous is that! I like that u make ur readers view something thrown-out as something cool and new. U let us know we CAN recycle/upcycle–we just need to look at things with new eyes so we can see the possibilities. Wonderful!

    That apron is really lovely. And I so understand your fear of making it dirty. It’s silly, ofcourse, for an apron, but I totally understand :-)
