How to Make a Retro Cocktail Apron

Article Image

Everything retro is cool again, and what is cuter than a perky cocktail apron à la Lucille Ball? It makes a great accessory for entertaining (what a conversation starter!) or a unique gift. You can make your own for under $10 and in less than a half hour with this tutorial from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 1.

All you need is a vintage tea towel in a quirky print and a length of wide ribbon to give this waist-hugging cover-up a modern twist. And do you want to know the very best part of the apron revival? In the construction method, the tea towel isn’t cut or damaged in any way. So should you ever want to turn it back into a collectible tea towel, just remove the ribbon!
