I made an apron today, which I'm so proud of, cause when I cook or bake I get ingredients all over me which is so unnattractive.  So I pulled out an old curtain that smells comfortingly like grandmothers and old houses.  I cut it off at about a foot and a half and used the whole width, then made ties from two strips.  I added pockets also made from the fabric and re-placed the lace from halfway down to the top on one but not on the other.  On to the pictures!

The shirt/skirt was the bottom of a drop waist dress that I cut the neck and arms off of and turned over.  I sewed three smiley-face buttons on too.  When worn as a top the buttons go in the center, when worn as a skirt they go on the side.
The jeans I refitted from flares. 
I'm so proud of it all!

For the pattern:

You can also see one pocket here.  The one with the lace moved to the top Smiley
