I know I've said this several times in other posts, but I find the idea of an apron quite appealing. But, I have to confess that I own nary a one. Last month I was doing crafts with my young friend Stella, who asked for an apron. When I told her I didn't have one, the look on her face told the whole story .... how could one not own an apron !
I now think of that every time I see an apron (or a pattern, since I don't own one), like these four advertised in a 1956 issue of McCalls Needlework.
I like the design, but this one would make my hips look larger than they really are (which is quite large). Obviously 1956 was far before the 'Pounds Thinner' concept. But, protection here would be on a grand scale. There's a picture of the back over at Vintage Wikia.
The original envelope shows it also has the option of a half apron.
This pattern is actually an applique set, which includes a leaflet on how to make the Apron. The flair on this little beauty is downright sassy!
Although not many, I do have a couple vintage apron patterns in my shop. I posted a blog last week which contained a couple free pattern ideas as well.
Thanks for dropping by,
