I was having a tough time thinking of a gift to sew for my eldest daughter. She loves to cook, likes retro styles and the color teal. How about a vintage inspired apron? I dove back into my fabric stash to see what I could come up with. I didn't find anything in teal but I think turquoise is pretty close. Throw in some sparkly rick rack and some bias tape and we've got ourselves a very 50's looking apron.
Here is a close-up of the pocket detail complete with monogram.

I don't mind if she happens to stumble upon the blog and see this. It's been mailed with instructions to "open early". I hope she loves it.
