Goodwill Apron

I told you about my most recent Goodwill treasures in Monday’s post. I spied this skirt while waiting in the mile long line.

People would presume that I shop in the girls department if I wore this skirt off the rack, but I had bigger plans for this frilly number. I was inspired to transform it into a girly apron, a task my rudimentary sewing skills could handle.  

First I cut the skirt into two pieces. I cut off the original seams. Then I used my sewing machine to make two less than perfect hems up the sides. Finally I attached some thick yellow ribbon and I was done. Super easy.  
The skirt cost me a whopping $1.50 and I have enough fabric to make two aprons. I think 75¢ per apron is a great bargain. Who knows, I may get really crazy and add pockets to apron number two.
