This was one of those projects that had been languishing in the WIP (work-in-progress) basket for oh........almost 18 months. You know how it goes. You want to finish it but something always comes up! I had cut it out and planned to finish it for a 1950's themed birthday party but with my mom's birthday in a few days, I thought that was a nice occasion to finish it. She loves aprons and can always use a new one so I think it suits her too. I used Simplicity 4692 which sadly, does not seem to be in print anymore! Simplicity does have quite a few vintage inspired apron patterns out though. If you are in the mood to make one, I am sure you could find one that you like!
It calls for cute pockets and more bias tape than I used but...... :whispers: I ran out of bias tape and did not feel like making anymore. Let's just say that i was going for a simplified look ;)
I was actually rather horrified to find that it suggested velcro for the neck closure. I really did not think that was very polished looking so I did two vintage buttons instead.
I said this was for my mom right? Well, I might just need to borrow it!
