    This is so funny – I am working on a couple of aprons for Christmas gifts
    right now. Came across this tutorial as I am working on them. Love the
    skull fabric. I think my son’s girlfriend would love it.

    You should organize all your sewing tutorials into one playlist! I hope you
    make more of them! I loved the Hair flower tutorial, using fabric scraps!!!
    Such a great idea!!!

  • Trudy Beem says:

    How awesome! I’m new to sewing and I love how simple you make sewing! Thank
    you. I found your Chanel not too long ago and had no clue you sewed also!
    This is the only Chanel I need! Lol thank you!

    I love the fabric, could you tell me where I can get? Thank you very much.
    Maybe you tell it but my english it’s not very good :))

    Hey lovely.

    I am completely in love with this piece. I’m rather new to sewing, and
    your tutorials are amazing.

    However, I can not get my paws on this book – thus I am a little lost for
    the measurements for the actual apron piece…. would you be able to
    provide the one you used?

    Love your work :)

  • Maker Gen says:

    That is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    That’s fabulous! 😀 What’s great with this style is a lot of times you can
    use scrap material for the accent sections so you get the most out of all
    your fabric!

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    Aw…that makes me smile! 😀 I’m so thrilled to be back with the sewing
    series!

    Having flash backs my grandma would make her own patterns but she would
    newspaper, school tracing paper. She would use different color sharpies for
    the markings My grandpa fishing weights to hold the paper. Memories.

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    Thanks doll! 😀 As I’m going I’m getting ideas of what I could add/change
    to make it even cuter! So who knows what I’ll end up with…lol!

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    LOL…you’re so right! 😀

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    Absolutely! I can’t guarantee that I can figure it out but between the two
    of us I’m sure we can suss things out together! That would be perfect if
    you could do that. 😀

    This is going to be so cute . I can’t wait for the next installment . I
    used to make all my aprons , but I havent for awhile , and they were very
    basic . I want to try to make one with more of a retro feel to it . The
    patterns in that book are so cute . I’m definately going to go look that up
    . I’m so pleased about “So Sew Vintage” being back 🙂

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    Yay! 😀 Love the extra touches they add to the aprons to make them really
    special!

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    Yay! 😀 Ok…perhaps I’ll go with intermediate! 😀 It’s one of my favorite
    shirts to wear especially on lazy weekends! lol

  • gobears1029 says:

    Love that you are trying out something different!

  • internetpixie says:

    can’t wait for part 2!

  • kaxtiechaos says:

    I’m so excited you’re doing this series – aprons are SO FUN to make!! I
    work in a fabric store, and alot of times when we get a fabric I like but I
    don’t know what I want to make, I’ll end up making a vintage-inspired
    apron. Can’t wait to see how yours turns out!

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    Thanks doll! 😀 That’s the foundation I’ve been sampling…it’s Stila’s
    stay all day foundation. I’ve been hunting for the right one and that’s the
    one I decided on! At least now I know I made the right choice! lol

  • Shannon Traynor Stright says:

    Ok, this is too weird . I was just searching online for vintage style apron
    patterns , when I saw you had posted a new video 🙂 This is great , I am so
    excited . Ok, now I’m going to watch the video 🙂

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    Whyyyyyy thank you darling! ;D

  • A Vintage Vanity says:

    Yay! 😀 I was hoping you’d like the pattern piece creation process (which
    will be in the next video).
