    Apron Made from Tux Shirt

    While I was browsing through GW looking for a shirt to make an apron for my DGD I saw several tux shirts. Hmmm, I thought, that would make a cute apron for when you have a dinner party. So, one followed me home and this was the result. The picture isn't the greatest but you get the idea.

    ​Looking classy! I used a men's black shirt last year to do an apron also, works great and guys don't mind wearing them.

    I picked up a black one too. It has a white collar and cuffs. I'm thinking of making it for my DGS-in-law. He and my GD both love to cook and entertain.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
