Aprons Made Out of Men's Button-down Shirts

I've been making some super awesome aprons to sell at the store my mom works at, and it's been a lot of fun. I had never made an apron before, but I started from scratch and decided I didn't want to use a pattern.

I have made quite a few, including some awesome ruffly ones. But I saw in a copy of Apronology some awesome aprons made out of old men's button-downs, and I gave those a try. I think everyone should do the same...,. they came out SO CUTE and were actually super easy. And the button-downs give you SO MUCH fabric to work with... I was completely surprised. I managed to get a full apron out of it, PLUS I used the arm pieces (which are HUGE) to make a skirt!!

Hopefully I can get some pictures up and inspire some ladies to try the same, so much fun!!

Sounds interesting.  I'd love to see a picture as I can't imagine how you went about doing this.  I like unusal stuff like this.
