Project finished: 1920s apron.

1920s apron pattern


I discovered the muslin for this project in my fabric stash box and, 2 years later, finally finished this apron. Not much to say, really. The cotton fabric was bought on the cheap, as were the vintage celluloid coat buttons.

I made a paper pattern from the muslin, cut out 2 pieces of fabric and with right sides together, sewed it together all the way around leaving an opening to turn right side out. Press, understitch all the way around, add 2 pockets, make 2 gigantic buttonholes for the coat buttons and that's it.

It's really comfortable and I like that it covers the entire front of me because I tend to make a mess in the kitchen.
