A Cute Little 50s Vibe Apron

I made a cute little apron for my aunt for her birthday. She loves to bake. Her birthday was in February and I finally had a chance to give her the apron. She loved it!

I used a fabric designed by Gertie Hirsch. I purchased it in 2016 from Joann. Gertie Hirsch had a fabric line at Joann with so many beautiful designs with a vintage vibe. I bought three pieces of fabric back then.

I have been saving this fabric for the perfect project and this was it! I love the pale yellow color with the pink, red and pink color of the flowers. It also has white polka dots. So cute! I think the 50s vibe of the fabric and the style of apron go perfectly together.

This is a self drafted apron pattern. I basically cut a rectangular piece for the main piece and made a ruffle at the top. I made a band for the waist and attached it to the ruffle. Then I made 2 ties at the side.

I hope my aunt enjoys wearing this apron while she bakes.

Happy Sewing!
