Skort Upcycle 2 - Refashioned Into Apron

As you know I still had loads of this Skort left from my Piggy post. Looking at the back portion of the skirt it occurred to me that it would make a cute and functional apron what with the existing pockets and all. I didn't take photos during but loads of after pictures. I used the hem around the short portion to make the tie.
Pretty easy all in all!

The Old Skort...again! :)

New Apron!

Apron Tie
The waistband contrast fabric is a nice added touch.

Pocket Detail.
The pockets are actually zippered, I guess in case you think you might lose something while cooking.

Do people actually put spatulas in their aprons? It looks like it might be a messy idea...

Flat, folded.
I am really happy with the way that this turned out! Now I should make a mini matching apron for the little piggy. I am only kidding, that would be overkill for sure. Although there are STILL the shorts from this skort to use up. It never ends.

Looks WAY bettera as an apron... in fact that is perfect apron material! Although... aprons without tops are useless. I wear an apron everyday, make me on with a top!
