My vintage apron....well sort of ;)


I sewed the vintage apron pattern. I used some vintage fabric I bought at an estate sale.

I love the big pockets on the side. It's truly a great workroom apron, since I use alot of fabric and wool dyes.

Love those pockets. They are about 12 inches deep!

Since the fabric, and the pattern were vintage. What's better than using a vintage button for the closure?


The 1967 apron pattern worked great! A little bit of fiddling and I had it right. Next time, I will make the front panel wider. The apron was originally designed for a rail thin fashionista. So far, I am loving the extra deep pockets! They are really handy, since I'm prone to setting things down and forgetting them.

The thick vintage fabric helps keep dyes and fabric paints off my good clothes. I plan to make several more fun aprons soon....I already have my next one cut out.
