Pretty in Plaid Apron

The process of making aprons from men’s shirts has been a learning experience! My design has evolved from a smocky apron to a farm-type apron to this type of traditional apron. All are unique and so fun to make!


This Pretty in Plaid Apron started once again with a Goodwill shirt I bought for the colors. The pocket is a corner of an embroidered tea towel set on point.


The pink trim and lace is from the bottom of my ribbon basket. The bodice looks very elegant.


The back has extra long ties to accommodate many sizes. I think I’m going to stick with this style for future aprons.


I’m still looking for opinions on appropriate prices for these aprons! What would you pay for a one-of-a-kind apron with embroidery and lace? Post your comments below.

Artfully sewing,

Angela Jean
