The Bobbie June

My mother requested an apron that would not pull or bind around the midsection at all, so here is the Bobbie June!
It is made of 100% cotton with an allover rose print. The arm holes are large, open and non-binding. The pockets are big enough to hold canning lids or a few extra apples or utensils. The back is open and feminine without being
binding. The tie on the back can be left off and this apron will stay put and not pull on the shoulders even during the hottest tomatoe canning session.

Sorry Bertie doesn't have any clothing yet. She is about a 22 to 24. I still need to size her down to my size, but haven't been able to wrestle her into a smaller zipper casing yet with my hands...soon though.

So Mom, here is your apron, soon to be in the mail. This is an pattern that I sketched after studying Amish styles.

This is a canning apron worn by the Amish.

And I love your blog as well! I LOVE aprons. Wearing one outside my home does bring some stares & odd looks though. I love sewing up apron tops to wear over long panel prairie skirts to satisfy my love for them. Your aprons are beautiful & puts me in the mood for sewing now.. I will be putting fellow blogger links on my site this week & if you do not mind, I would like to add yours to the list. I have you bookmarked for future readings too.

Final thoughts...

Thank you for visiting today. Feel free to sit for a spell and wander through my archives of sewing projects, aprons, original poems and stories, musings and vintage treasures. I really love guests in my home....and if you wish, leave me a comment so I will know you were here! AG
