At work this year, the United way fundraiser basket theme was comedy movies. My work area chose the movie “Julie and Julia” to center the basket around. After I got permission (had to make certain that hand-made items would be accepted), I made a 1950’s style half apron for the basket.
This time around, I mixed two of my favorite patterns together for the finished apron. I took the skirt and waistband from Butterick 5579. The ties came from Simplicity 2592. I didn’t bother with any lace or bias trim. I used a narrow rolled hem on the skirt. I did cut two waistbands instead of one so that I had more room for my ties.
I think I may have at least one to two more aprons to make this year. One for another holiday party and possibly one for my sister. I am not sure yet if she would like to have an apron.
