Z-E-T with an A!

A few years ago, I was excited to receive a request from a friend's mom who was helping out at ZTA rush at UGA. She wanted some Zeta themed aprons for her and some of the ladies to wear while they served food, etc. to the sisters and rushees. I was a Zeta in college, so I was really excited to take on this project. Each sorority has its own colors, symbols and history. I thought about all the different symbols for Zeta and what it stood for and decided on my 3 faves: the strawberry, the crown and colors and breast cancer awareness. I was able to find some vintage strawberry bedsheets on Etsy, some sparkly crown fabric and (finally) some pink ribbon fabric that didn't drive me crazy. I love the pink ribbon movement, but I find it very hard to find awareness fabric that isn't too cheesy for what I do.

Love the ruffles!

Top ruching allows for a conformed fit

The yellow is an old bedsheet as well

Used a strawberry applique instead of a button

The wonderful ladies in action!
