Fashion Utility Obi Apron from a 70's pattern.. Included stirrup leg warmer in the pattern. Didn't make those.
We have to call this one New Vintage Wardrobe Project 4.5 because really it isn't that old (70's) and it was pretty easy to do too..
I have a much fancier item to post next week and this is the "filler" before the "killer".
The pattern will be used to make a few other corset-y belts, I think, but probably not the lighter holder or the many stash pouches. Bad habits as fashion accessories! Ooh La La!
Call me old fashioned, but if I can't be bothered to dig a lighter out of my purse maybe it is time to cut back on the cigs. Alright I don't really smoke unless someone sets me on fire.. but still....
For other great modern day utility aprons .. you simply must go visit that Super Eggplant and the darling of the internet, sweet Kristin at kleas..
Superior apronage, for certain.
And now on to glamourous and gratuitous Non Denominational Springtime decor:
The white rabbit my mom made me from the Mc Call's pattern when I was a kid.
The manniquins with flowers and nests. (The center manniquin is wearing a beautiful baby dress from Besty Partridge.. A friend of my family and a great children's author.)
The wooden peg-ish dolls and butterfly doll I have been working on.
My childhood bunny cart.. made for me when I was 3.
Happy Easter Weekend everyone! Save some peeps for me!
