The finishing touches have just been finished and I’m happy to say that the 1940’s Apron Pattern is now available to purchase on in my store!
This pattern can be finished in two ways. You can finish the edges bias binding for contrast/trim OR you can do bias facing and have the fabric be your focal point. Either version can be made in a solid fabric or two different fabrics.
This pattern was based on an original period 1940s pattern but has been extensively updated while still retaining a period fit. included are step-by-step illustrated instructions, cutting layouts for modern 45″ fabric widths, and multiple sizes per packet. Sewing both verisons of this apron calls for pre-made purchased bias binding. Also included is a page with how-to’s for using bias binding or facing, and I will also be posting photo tutorials for bias binding and facing here on the blog to be of an aid to those who are beginning level stitchers. More info on the pattern can be found on my website.
The back of the apron fastens with a button and buttonhole and sits a little low on the back neck. I think it’s kind of cute and unexpected, and a great way to showcase a cute button in your stash!
Hope you love the new pattern! :)
