Wife of the Year v.2.0

Some of you may remember my post about vying for wife of the year back in early December. Well, I think I'm at it again.

About a week ago I got a wild hair up my ass that made me want to make the perfect apron. I wanted one that could hold the following items-
-my cell phone- I always seem to be ther furthest away from it when it rings.
-my notepad and pen- I'm a constant list maker.
-my label maker, sometimes- I've named her Mabel. Get it? I actually use her alot.
-scissors- I can't believe how many times I go on the hunt for scissors.
-my micro fiber dust rag- my new best friend that can be found at the dollar store.
-anything else I might need.

The other requirements were that it was full length (I'm constantly spilling something on myself or leaving little threads from sewing all over me), that it looked somewhat retro and that it was a proper fit for me. Well, it looks retro enough with a cherry print on turquoise background. I even found some red rick rack to trim it with. It's a little too long for me and it gaps really bad in the bosom area, but I think with a little tweeking and few darts here and there it should be just fine.

You need your label maker on you at all times? That's awesome!

I totally want one! I've been thinking that I need a house dress like a totally retro one. But I fear that that might make me look a little moo mooish. I love your apron idea!! So very cool!!
