Two unique and fun aprons from one jean overall.

Approximate Time: 1 hour



Cut off the legs below the crotch, split the crotch seam and lay flat overlapping topstitch down. Take off the fasteners, save for another use. Cut side seams so you have a front and back. Bind or finish off the edges anything works, let them fray, that's ok too.

The red trimmed apron is the front of the overalls, I sewed on some trim and made red ties for the back and neck, I tied them on the button fasteners and sewed to the sides, then I took a small piece of red fabric and hemmed 3 edges and gathered it the bottom. For the lacey apron, take the straps and sew them together in the back, trim the edges with lace and doilies. Anything goes for these aprons. These both sold within hours of making them!

I just love these! I wear aprons a lot. I'll be on the lookout for overalls at the thrift stores.
Thank you for the great idea.
