I found this expensive eyelet material at a local sewing store and knew I had to have it.  I realized after I made this apron, it reminded me of my Southern Roots and how sometimes when creating and hosting an event, I could look oh so beautiful and southern in this apron.  Skirt is lined with white lace material (same as bib), Embellished with lace, ribbon, buttons to give it a retro feel.

Blue Ocean Swirls- Featured in Apronology 2014, San Diego Fair 2nd Place ,2013

   

I was interviewed for a story in Apron.ology by a contributing editor;  Danielle Mohler.  I noted that one of my favorite female artist was Lenore Fini, a surrealist artist, who painted in her glamorous clothing. Seeing those images of her gave me permission to dress myself in high fashion.   Growing up in Florida, always on the beach, I was attracted to this satin fabric that reminded me of the swirling ocean where I would sail and swim.

Ms. Dior’s Retro House Apron -featured in Apron.ology 2014, 3rd Place sewing San Diego Fair 2014

 

 

I created this  reversible house dress in memories of my grandmothers who taught me how to sew.  They often donned these beautiful house dresses to cover their day dresses, just in case company would  just stop by to visit,  they would appear graciously beautiful and coiffed.  I used an old vintage retro pattern combine the pink embellished material with a black/pink material, making it reversible in case you spilled something on the front.  Fabric and lace was found in vintage material warehouse in San Fransico in the bedding department.  Of course, I had other ideas!
