My mother sent this photo to me. Look at this lovely apron. Love the sweetheart neckline and the ruffly trim on the skirt part. I am going to have to draft this one out. I love it. I want one like this for myself. I think I know just how I'm going to do it too. I think I'll give it a nice feminine treatment on the backside too and give it a full back rather than a tie around the neck! Thanks Mom!! LOVE this apron. Oh, the other one you sent to me is the Bobbie June, but just a shorter version of it. It is the H back canning apron!
I love this retro dress. I will be sewing this in the next few weeks for myself. I also want to adapt an apron from this. I love the darts on the front of the dress. The way it wraps is slimming, love the V bodice. It is a super simple pattern with high impact...in my humble opinion. I might look like a 10 pound sausage stuffed in a 5 pound casing when I make this, but I guess I could always wear it to bed as a gown! LOL
Here is another Retro pattern that I bought. Don't ya just love the wasp waist and the neckline on this one. And the cute little jacket is to die for.....Unfortunately I don't have a wasp waist. Ahhhh....but I have two daughters to sew for! LOL OMGosh, what am I thinking with this second pattern. I couldn't wear a bra with it....egads! Well...can't have that! LOL
I love these retro reissues by Butterick. There are many more available in their new catalogs. Check them out, they ought to be pretty fun to make!
Sorry, no new aprons to post tonight. Starting my second week of new job orientation.
Have a great day!
Love, peace and joy to all,
