I made my art apron a couple of years ago with the help of my friend Sandi and love it! It is lightweight and comfortable and all the paint smears stand out on it but it needed a little pizzazz!
I have been hoarding some tops I bought years ago on clearance at J. Crew, thinking one day I would use them in an art project. I took the ruffles off of one of them and added them to the top and also to the front of the pockets. I also added the scraps to the ends of the ties. I rather like how it turned out!
