My latest sewing projects have all been aprons. Maybe because I wanted to disguise my inabilities as a cook by at least trying to look good cooking.  Cheesy My problem is, once I make something, and am pleased with how it turns out, well... one finished item turns into 2, which turns into 3, until I completely get sick of them and refuse to make anymore.

That hasn't happened yet with these aprons! Here are 3 of about 10 I have made so far! All modeled by my dress form, I have affectionately named "Gertie" which to me sounded like an appropriate 50's housewife name.  Grin

I hope you like them!

Those are seriously elegant aprons. Perfect for serving ready made meals so it looks as if you made them yourself Tongue  I love the fabrics you have used.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

I have to ask, did you use a pattern or make this up yourself.  I ask because my mom would absolutely love these!

No pattern for them, just sorta figured out a style that worked without too much difficulty to make!

The styles and fabrics are amazing!  You could easily sell these for big $$, though I totally know what you mean about making tons of something, then being DONE... It isn't just getting sick of them, more a need to try a little bit of everything!  Smiley
