Meeting the Apron Skirt Challenge!

Ladies I made a skirt.
I googled vintage aprons and looked through lots of various styles before I made mine. Here are a few of my favorites.

Growing up my grandma had an apron in her broom closet that was yellow, orange and red colors with bias trim. When we needed a coverup that was the one I used. So my fabric choices were following that nostalgia.

I think the kitties remind me of the hand embroided kitchen towels of Yesterday.
What do you think?
I used a green bias trim next to a yellow floral ruffle. I put on bias trimed tulip pockets. I must admit it is the coolest and most comfortable skirt. I think I will be wearing it all summer. :D
