Who says you can’t look glam in the kitchen?

Hi there everyone,
My friend at work is leaving for pastures new this week. I’m really sad she is leaving, she quite often keeps me sane! Because she is also a really creative person I wanted to make her a leaving present rather than buy something.
When I was about 5 years old my Nana bought me a cute little broderie anglaise apron. Nana wasa thrifty gal too and I’m certain she bought it at a jumble sale! I loved that little apron and wore it when we baked (well Nana baked, I just rolled a bit of pastry around until it turned black) and sometime just because I wanted to.
So inspiration hit! I will make my friend an apron so she can look vintage glam while pottering around the house.
I didn’t have a pattern so after a couple of hours soaking up vintage inspiration on Pinterest, I drafted my own.
And here are the results…
I think I will make more of these little aprons. They make great little vintage inspired gifts. You can see more pictures and info on my blog.
Hope you are having a great Monday folks.
Love, Eliza Brown x

Hello! I love sharing my passion for dressmaking, crafting and all things vintage. I'm by no means a professional dressmaker so I'm eager to learn from you all. I live in a small town on the North East coast of England where the pies are warm and beer is cold!
