A note from Kelly Rae: How Cute Is That is a new series where my mom and I share favorite DIY projects and ideas. Today’s post is all about taking a beloved old skirt that no longer fits (hello post baby weight!) and creating an adorable apron out of it – an idea my mom had recently. By the way, “how cute is that” is an expression you can often hear my mom saying when she delights in her latest project
whether crafting, sewing, or just rearranging furniture. We all love it when she says it….
skirts are not easily let out, so we came up with a solution –let’s make an apron out of it!
small hem, added a coordinating fabric for waistband and ties. For the waist band I used about 8” of
fabric folded in half with a 1” hem.
I used the width of my fabric for easy sake (about 42”), I then added
the same fabric to each side for the tie. It was so exciting to see the finished product. I think it’s cute enough to wear over
can as a re-purposed apron. Get out your scissors and sewing
machines and give it a try!
