apron swap reveal

I just had word that Miss Karla received her apron today, so now I can share it with you.
This was a swap hosted by Heather and Stephenie. I truly had so much fun creating an
apron for Karla:



I used two vintage aprons to make my creation for Karla. One as the base, and the other
to make the pockets and the yoke.

The yoke and pockets were trimmed out with baby pom pom trims, velvet ribbon, and
sweet little vintage seam binding bows.



The yoke was trimmed with vintage millinery and paper posies.



Karla looks absolutely adorable wearing her apron, you can see that in her post here.
Miss Twinkle is looking pretty snazzy too!

Oh! My! But a girl could whip up a fabulous dinner while 'looking' at this apron, then put it on to serve. Prettiest apron creation.
I know you are proud and when one turns out a cutie like this, it is fun.

Don´t you ever dare to tell me that you can´t sew anymore. This apron looks gorgeous! And you ladies on that side of the big water, are so lucky to find vintage stuff everywhere, I don´t think I ever even saw a vintage apron over here. But combining the two is geneous, I love that front panel!
