A while back, a twitter friend asked if I’d like some vintage aprons she’d collected. Um, yes please.
Gotta love twitter.
When the big pile of aprons arrived in the mail, I knew a couple of the gathered rectangle aprons (already with cute hem details) would make perfect newborn baby dresses. I love super-long dresses on tiny babies.
A little lace trim and some vintage buttons were the finishing touch.
-find a rectangular shaped apron and lap shoulder baby shirt.
-cut off waistband and ties from apron
-sew apron together at the center back to create the skirt and gather top to fit lap shoulder t-shirt
-sew skirt onto lap shoulder t-shirt
-sew apron ties onto side seams
-embellish with lace and/or buttons.
