Apron for the Man

April 13, 2008

Just finished a black linen apron for a nephew based on the man’s apron in this 1968 Simplicity Pattern # 7974

Changed the stitching detail at the top of the pocket – used a Jean Muir style hem stitch and made the ties on the bias rather than length of grain.

More of a story on my blog. But these are the basics.

And here is the completed apron to be shipped out to the nephew.

Oh yes, I ought to say, am new to posting here, though have been reading and adding comments for a few weeks. Make lots of hats and aprons from vintage patterns. And pleased to find other enthusiasts. Thanks for including me in this blogging group.

  1. Two rows top stitching at hem edge and again just below top of hem – so like channel stitching but no stitches in the middle.
