1950's Vintage Style Apron

For my friend's bridal shower a few weeks ago I made her a 1950's vintage style apron. I've had this pattern for a while now (another 99 cent find) and have just been needing a reason to make it. I already have too many aprons and I knew that this friend in particular loves vintage things. She seemed to really love it when she opened it and felt so special that I made it just for her. I enjoyed making it (p.s. it was quick) and hope she enjoys it too!
Here are some photos I took really quickly before I wrapped it up...

I was drawn to the fabric for the colors and close up you notice the pattern is spoons and plates! The lining is a coordinating orange plaid. It has orange buttons for the strap closures and rick-rack on the neckline and pockets. 


I really find it to be unique, practical, and adorable. Not to mention perfect for looking fab while fixing Thanksgiving dinner or... just hanging out and looking oh so beautiful and domestic!
