I was looking thru Pintrest the other day, and came upon this adorable apron. I don’t know about you, but I love aprons, and this seemed like such a wonderful idea. I knew that my husband was throwing away a shirt and I thought , Why Not.
Men’s Dress Shirt Apron
First cut off the sleeves and the back.
Cut around the collar but leave it intact. I cut very close to the seam so that I wouldn’t have to hem anything or have any raw edges.
Button the shirt all the way down at the very beginning. This will help your fabric stay straight
Make sure both sides are even
Use your rotary cutter and ruler to make a diagonal cut from the armpit to the top of the shoulder. if you do not have a rotary cutter, use a white marking pencil .
Turn a hem under, concealing all raw edges, and sew it down. Do this on both sides.
.The final step is to make the apron ties. You could use ribbon if you wanted, but I chose to cut strips of fabric on the bias
Close all raw edges in and sew your straps on to the bottom of your diagonal cut. Be sure to backstitch several times for reinforcement.
