Julie and Julia

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.
