Betty Dear by Darlene Zimmerman is a chic collection of '40s era housedress prints. We loved the group so much that we decided to create the Betty Apron - a fully finished kitchen apron. A ruched sweetheart neckline adds a special feminine touch while the neck ties, and elastic waist ties offer added support. The apron is available in three color options - Aqua, Blossom, & Red Anemone.
Darlene is so sweet that she's come up with a great list of crafty embellishment ideas and the special "Honey, I'm Home" appetizer recipes!

Betty Apron Embellishment Ideas
Choose a coordinating fabric and attach pockets for added functionality. Try these directions from Fat Quarterly for adding a pieced pocket.
Matching ric-rac or ribbon, especially 1" or larger, is a great way to personalize any accessories! These instructions from TaDa! Creations show you how to attach ric-rac into a seam or on top of any project.
Ruffles would be a great addition to this dainty apron! Use your sewing machine's ruffle foot to create your own, or buy them pre-fab like this from Simplicity Creative group.
