"Waste not, want not," wasn't just some quaint philosophy for women back in the day-it was an entire, necessary way of life. MaryJanesFarm has the pattern and instructions for converting a worn men's shirt into a more-than-serviceable, vintage-style apron, so you can protect your garments from grime, whether you're mucking about in the garden, or rattling saucepans in the kitchen.

Patterned fabrics from another shirt can be used to finish the edges of the apron and provide decorative contrast. ::MaryJanesFarm
