Featured Item: Lime Chiffon Apron

Price: $20.00

Upcycled from an old pair of jeans, a lime green sheer and lace blouse, this apron features 5 functional pockets and lots of special detailing.

The bulk of the apron is denim. The button fly has been removed completely, and the raw edges are finished off with lime green cotton quilt binding. Across the bottom of the apron, the lace and sheer fabric has been pieced together in a ruffle, with the stitching following the curves in the lace in some spots. The sash is constructed from a portion of the sheer lime green fabric with interfacing attached and the sleeves of the shirt. The sash is tacked down in the center so that it doesn't slide out.

The remaining waistband of the jeans measures approximately 28" (71 cm), and the sash is approximately 60" (152.5 cm). This apron will fit any waist size from about 28" (or a little smaller) to about 50", to allow for enough of the sash to tie. At the center of the apron, the length is 17 1/2" (44.5 cm), and at the sides of the apron, the length is 13 1/2"(34 cm).
