Vintage Christmas Apron

What happened to November? It's flying by at record speed, and I've only just started to put away Halloween! I'll have to get a jump on Christmas.  
I guess now it's official. Dressing my vintage sewing mannequin has become a holiday tradition!
One of my first jobs involved dressing store windows and mannequins. I forgot how much fun it is. This vintage check apron looks so sweet.  Pretty sexy actually:)
I rarely wear these cuties, because I don't want to get them dirty. Silly really, since that's what an apron's for, right?
 My work space feels much more festive with my mannequin dolled up for Christmas!

  7. Love that you dressed your dress form for the holidays. I guess she is in cooking and baking mode. Will she wear something party-ish later? I am now a follower on GFC.
