For this project you will need to raid your husband’s (father’s, brother’s or son’s) closet for the material – you don’t need new fabric, just some old shirts! Take that discarded button up out of the boardroom and into the kitchen as an Upcycled Apron.
This pattern includes two unique apron styles. One is an over-the-head smock style, which features a front tie and two large pockets. The neck, pocket and armhole edges can be finished with a contrasting bias tape for a fun pop of color.
The back of the apron features a fun button closure which makes use of the tab of one cuff!
The second apron style is can be made for both a man and a woman. This apron shows off the button placket of the shirt. With an adjustable neck tie, the apron will fit most sizes. Two large “kangaroo” pockets will help you keep cooking supplies handy.
I love that the neck ties are attached with rings!
This apron looks as good on him as it will on her!
