I took a break from my refashion dress to sew something quick and fun. The moment I saw this fabric of 1950's women in the kitchen, I knew I had to make an apron out of it. Perfect, right?? It was a lot of fun to make (no pattern) and I think it came out well.

Well this is my second choice to redo. Adrieanna vetoed the first piece which was a floral dress. She couldn't envision the beautiful masterpiece I had planned for it. Not sure what to make with this but the print is nice. It will definitely be a shirt of some sort and since it has been cooler in my oven than outside I will make it short sleeve.
Hmm that's not what the print looks like. It looks like I'm in front of a carnival mirror, but you get the idea of the style. I think it added 20 pounds also. lol
wow I wish the print did look like that. LOL The print is like the picture without me in it.
More to come. I need to put my creative cap on for this one.
Ok I buy fabric pretty much whenever and wherever I can find a good deal. I saw this at Salvation Army today with Adrieanna.
Its pretty and I've seen lots of shirts lately with this pattern, It was only .75. Good price and I envisioned a t-shirt upstyle. Well I opened it up to discover how many yards I had purchased. Did I mention that it was just as you see it but with a piece of tape around it? I opened it up and showed it to Adrieanna and we started cracking up. The above image is the inside.
This is the outside. LOL
Hmmm I think I will make me some shorts with this.
Amy visited our house last month and we were talking about what has turned into "refashion month". I had an old dress that I had bought just for that and so I needed a tank top and here it is.
I took off the sleeves and the bottom. It was pretty easy, however, this is a tough material to serge but since I am new to serging and rather lazy I thought I would give it a whirl. Turns out my initial instinct to NOT serge it was right, as it would have had a nicer finish with a regular stitch. But it will work for this summer.
Hmm I cant figure out how to turn this picture.
I think it turned out pretty good.
