Laundress-Apron to Summer-Dress

Hello everybody,

Today I've something "old" for you. I thrifted a beautiful vintage-apron with allover-blue flowers. I love the fabric and everything but I didn't liked the laundress-look. It doesn't fit anyway, so I soon decided to refashion it to something more summer-like.


So I just removed the button-part of the dress and joint both fabric pieces. Then I simply shortened the dress and fixed the straps. 

See the whole tutorial and more pictures at my blog.

Last weekend I refashioned 3 items, but didn'd had the time to take pictures. So watch out for some nice refashions soon!

Thanks for your interest!
