Here is a great way to reuse what you already have to create something new. Turn any old dress or skirt into an apron! What makes this easier than sewing from new materail is that the dress already fits you (or once did) so you don't need to worry about sizes!
Be sure to check out what you can find at thrift stores, this is a simple gifts idea for the new bride or for a great dirty santa gift! Get creative!
Step 1: Dig
Step 2: Chop it up!
* I did the same with the dress but it was a little more complicated. Since there are a number of ways you can tie the strings in the back be sure to think about how you want your apron to tie off. I chose the standard neck opening and tie at waist style. You could also do a one tie similar to that of the Bath and Bodyworks aprons that criscross over the back and then tie- this allows the apron to fit to whoever may be wearing it.
* Anyway, cut the dress to the style of tie you want. I cut up the back of my dress and then near the waist seem and up the edge of the back- I folded that portion over to get the same cut on the other side.
