My pal, Amy, of Into Vintage and Vintage Market Guide collects vintage tablecloths....including the ones with holes and stains. Then she sits down at her sewing machine, cuts them up, and turns them into something fabulous, instead of just letting them pile up in closets and drawers like some people I know. Anywho, I recently handed her a sweet but holey yellow cloth festooned with pineapples and lemons and asked her to work her magic. She did.
The pocket is my favorite bit. The black vintage trim is perfect!
Amy dug through her stash and crafted the tie from a color coordinated vintage sheet. The only problem? I can't imagine actually using the apron while cooking. It's too pretty to ruin with splatters of spaghetti sauce and cheap red wine. Maybe I'll only wear it while I'm reading. Thank you, Amy!
