Apron made from men's shirt

Gauyabera Apron

A couple of months ago I woke up one Sunday and decided I had to spend the day rummaging through bins of vintage mens’ shirts and then make aprons out of them. I have no idea where I got the idea – maybe I was having a very bizarre dream (we have been watching a lot of Dexter lately – Florida, Cuban-culture, Guayaberas…maybe?) But unlike most creative impulses I get, I actually followed through with this one and made 3 aprons that I’m pretty psyched about.  I got really inspired by the Guayaberas with their pin tucks and cool pockets, which could be mixed and matched on the aprons.
