I collect old vintage linens, and the old tablecloths from the 1930s and '40s are my favorites. When I find one that has stains or tears in it, I cut it up, add other fabrics, and recycle it into an apron. I make a LOT of aprons that I sell, and this is by far my favorite design. It's practical and very figure-flattering.
The colors range from reds to pinks to greens, with one side being a modern stripe and the other a vintage "ivy leaf" and sort of "lattice" design. It's edged with hand-made green dotted swiss seam binding and all of the edges are finished. The two large pink and green polka dot pockets add to the apron's function, and a little vintage white button sets it all off at the neckline.
