Old Hollywood Costume Aprons

I had an interesting request last month from someone who is opening up a theme party venue for kids and teens. One of the themes is Old Hollywood, and she asked if I could make 15 costume aprons for teens based on iconic dresses like Audrey Hepburn's little black Breakfast at Tiffany's dress, Marilyn Monroe's white dress, etc. It was a project right up my alley! I did several based on specific dresses, and then the rest were just retro inspired fancy dresses.

Here are the results, aprons on the left.

Audrey Hepburn - Breakfast at Tiffany's
Marilyn Monroe - Pink Dress while singing "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend"
Marilyn Monroe - Iconic White Dress

Elizabeth Taylor
Grace Kelly - Rear Window
I Love Lucy Red Gingham Dress
I Love Lucy - Classic Polka Dot Dress
