So after I made my first two oilcloth aprons for a friend who's a hairdresser, I got an order for another one from one of the other stylists in her salon.  She picked out the fabric and so this is what I came up with.  Critiques and comments are welcome.

That looks so cute. But what is an oil cloth?

Wonderful!!  Was the oilcloth tough to work with?

As a stylist, I really love that the oilcloth is easily wipeable! And such a pretty cloth, with that cute ruffle. I'm really wanting to make a long apron just like this, but with lots o pockets for all my clippies and whatnot.

I use the term "oilcloth" as a catchall term.  The fabric pictured is actually laminated fabric but is generally found near the oilcloth section.  Oilcloth is just fabric covered with a slick petrol based or platic top.  Really popular in the 50's and used for tablecloths.   I found it at a local fabric store here.  I have seen the same stuff online.  Search for laminated fabric or just browse oilcloth sections.  It's not hard to work with at all.  I bought a teflon foot for my machine just incase but I haven't had to use it.

Super cute!  I have been meaning to to sewing with oilcloth but have always been hesitant.  I love that you made ruffled out of the lamenated fabric as well.
