the best laid plans

This was a little project I had in the back of my mind for a while. I have a stash of vintage aprons that I imagined turning into little shirts.

Wouldn't they just be so cute over a white tank top and some cropped pants? With little wedge sandals? Sure they would. If you weighed 110 lbs and wore a size two.

Alternately, they would be adorable as a smock dress for a little girl. Say, between 8 and 10 years old. I wish I had a little one to try one on.

If you happen to be reading this and think that you'd look snazzy in one of these little smocks, leave me a comment. I'll ship it off to you. I love them very much, but I'll never be able to wear them and I want them to go to a good home.

I figure the larger one (the red and black) would fit about a 34" bust, the smallest one (the blue) would probably be best for a child. The medium (the red and black) would fit a 32" bust. Each one is made from a vinatge apron, with vinate buttons and hand sewn with care!

If they prove popular, I'll sew the rest of the aprons and maybe put them on

Oh, they're really cute! I especially like the blue one. But sadly, I'm equipped with a 37" bust and no children. :(

Um, I'm your friend with the 34" bust. And I love vintage aprons. I've also had a really bad day and have a birthday soon.

That's all I'm saying.
