From Overalls to Cross Back Apron

My pottery overalls had finally bitten the dust. No wonder, they were more than 25 years old although I had not worn them for a number of years.  Saying goodbye to my overalls was a painful prospect.  What would I  wipe the clay on?  I decided to make an apron from them.

First, I cut off the legs being careful to keep all the pockets.

It was not until I turned the overalls over that I realized that I had the makings of a no-sew cross back apron!  Se my other post on how to sew one from scratch here

Just cut the seam right down the middle of the back.

Make sure the straps are plenty long to accommodate the cross over.

Rear view.  You don’t have to unhook the straps to put on the apron which is what is so great about a cross back apron in the first place!
