I recently made this apron for my partner in the Bento Swap.

I love this apron! The colors are just beautiful together. It makes me want to wear a fifties getup and bake some pie  Cheesy

It's from a Simplicity pattern #2592. The pattern called for another tier for the skirt which I opted to leave out and instead of the shoulder straps buttoning at the waist in back I made them tie.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.

I think I would stay in the kitchen all day just to wear it. I'm in love with vintage aprons and this one is one of the nicest I've ever seen. Shocked Shocked
