Vintage apron by EmmaI find something romantic about vintage clothes and accessories. Somehow the lines seem more feminine and soft. I know I am not alone in feeling like this…. a visit to the Love Vintage Fair last month was full of folk embracing the fashions of last century.

The first vintage apron workshop I ran  fairly organic in nature. We looked at lots of images of vintage aprons online to get a feel for the iconic styles and shapes. From there each person drew a sketch of the type of apron they wanted to sew. Out came the fabrics including this beauty shown. Coupled with some striking lace and braid, the vibrant colours just sang!!!

I loved helping the girls bring their aprons to life. Each one was quite different but they all had their own wonderful charm!

So looking forward to running this workshop again on Saturday!!
