The Apron

Visions of Donna Reed floated in my head as I sewed this apron from a 1950 re-released Simplicity pattern. When I looked in the mirror I saw Aunt Bea. What a reality check. It is still a cute apron; I am sure Clara would be jealous. The detail photo shows the brown bias trim that finishes all the seams and edges. I liked the fabric which of course I bought on sale. We would save so much money if there weren’t so many fabric sales. I bought a yard and a half to have the length I needed and was able to squeeze out four additional squares to make the matching pot holders. I didn’t know how to set up a better photograph and still show the shape of this apron other than putting it on the dress form. I have another apron to show tomorrow, I’ll work on finding a more artistic way to photograph that one.
