Vintage style aprons & hand towels

Last Friday my friend Stephanie over @ Chef Tess Bakeresse asked me to make her some vintage style aprons. She brought me this retro skirt she thought would be a cute apron. I added a bib, pockets,trim and voila, a re-purposed retro-vintage double sided apron!

 The eyelet and rick rack trim are curtsey of a long time friend of my moms Merlene, now those trims are vintage!

This next apron is a half apron. The fabric was left over from some drapes I did last year, I love the fabric and thought it would make a cute apron. I use 3 in wide brown lace, and light aqua trim. I love how it turned out. 

 This is my fav apron out of the 3 I did, it's a cross between I love Lucy/French maid. I love the ruffles, the eyelet trim and pearl buttons really make this apron super girly and dare I say sexy!

 Stephanie also asked me to crochet her a hand towel, I added some black polka dot ribbon and button to give it a modern twist.

If you like what you see head on over to Chef Tess Bakeresse cause guess what she is having a give away you could win one of the above aprons or hand towel, so go check it out and enter! And if you are visiting from Stephanie's blog welcome and I hope you will become a follower thanks for visiting!
