Apron for the Man

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.

  • What’s a Jean Muir style hem? I’ve never heard of this…

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