Fabric of The Week – Shirt Apron

Fabric of The Week

Got this idea from a charity shop find book “the shirt off his back by Juliet Bawden. This fabric is a Lanes husband’s shirt. And the transformation was quick and fun to do.


Simply cut from the collar down to below the sleeve on both sides then cut up the centre back.


The book suggested turning down a hem all round the cut edges but we decided to give it more of a pop by using red bias binding for the edges and yellow and red tape for the ties.
