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.

1

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

2

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.
