The Bonne....very sweet and feminine and RETRO

I have finally completed the Bonne apron. It is pure Southern Charm. Perfect with pearls and sweet tea on a hot Virginia day. I ended up making a little bow thingie with two vintage tatted coasters. They are removable. It just needed somethig to make it complete.

The photos below are the ones while this was a WIP. Now I want to try my hand at some really unusual fabrics and styles....but we'll see.


This apron is a retro pattern that I got from a link posted by Bonne over on Mary Jane's Farmgirl site. I love this apron. Bonne you are right it is ultra feminine and very retro.

This is being constructed from a very soft, pale peach muslin. I might even add a couple of pockets with some embroidery on each pocket. I'll have to see. The pattern doesn't call for any pockets. I think it is meant to be a hostess type apron, but I would wear this one whenever I was feeling down in the dumps. It is a sure picker upper!!

Here is the link for anyone else who wants to try this one. Just working out a couple of minor bugs in the instructions, but nothing too difficult!

Retro apron pattern from 1949

Thanks Bonne!
