Aprons! Two to be exact. I figured I’d just have to find contrasting fabric for the ties but then I realized that there was matching lining. Now, aprons don’t need lining! I cut that lining out and into strips and made four ties. I cut the skirt down both of the side seams, removing the zipper. Then I hemmed the sides and inserted the apron ties in the open waistband before sewing it closed. (I admit this was a bit of a sloppy job – the designers clearly didn’t have me and my aprons in mind when they designed the skirt.)
It resulted in two darling, retro-like aprons!
