Craft This! Weekly: Retro

Craft This! is a weekly challenge to create any kind of craft based on a chosen theme. Next week’s theme will be posted soon at Tiny Elephant, come join us!

This week’s theme was “retro”, and I decided to design a full apron with a bit of a retro feel to it. I made one up in an autumn print because I’m in the mood for cooler weather, but I’d like to try the pattern in some bright, 50s-ish prints, too.

Autumn Full Apron Handmade Hostess

It has a big ol’ ruffle around the bottom and a bodice that dips just a bit.

Retro Inspired Ruffle Full Apron

I love the back. The wide shoulder straps criss-cross and then tie at waist level. I think it looks sturdy enough to milk a cow, yet pretty enough to serve a Thanksgiving turkey. 😀

Fall Thanksgiving Full Apron Pocket

There’s a little pocket, too, hiding in there somewhere.

This one is for me, but I can make a couple more, so I put a listing in my shop. 🙂
