How is everyone doing on your Back to the Future aprons? I love the few peeks we've seen ... be sure to post your fabric/pattern choices so we can all ooohh and aahhh over them! New swappers who are sending me to need to get them into the mail this weekend.
This is a funny scene from the movie .... in my memory, the mom was wearing an apron but when I watched it again, I realized it's actually a retro nursing-blouse! However, it reminds me of a smock apron (which can be flirty with fun fabric choices and trims - I've used the Lilly Apron pattern or just use Lucy's free tutorial).
The collar on Lorraine's dress is the same collar on this apron pattern I own (upper right) - Butterick B5474, bought at Joann's for $1.99.
The 50's always make me think of poodle skirts .. wouldn't you love one of these poodle skirt aprons from Cupcake Provocateur??
The 80's are very punk to me, or neon or ... Rainbow Brite!
Whatever you choose, I know we'll love it!
My next swap will be a Fall/Halloween themed after this baby wraps up. If you missed this one and can't wait to get started on a new swap, my friend Sue at Country Pleasures is hosting her FIRST apron swap. Pop over and tell her Shawnee sent ya!
