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 etsy.com.

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.
