in 1920s,Aprons

I saw this original pattern for sale somewhere- on Etsy maybe?- dated 1925, and thought it SO cute that I wanted to use it as inspiration for my own version of the pattern. Then I made a bunch of aprons to give as Christmas gifts this year. I’m so proud of myself because every year I want to make my gifts and then can’t get it done. Well, this year I managed it. I can make this beauty in just a few hours time, so that was a major plus in my favor.

Here are the results:
Along with the apron, I collected a few of my favorite depression era recipes from a variety of original sources and made a small booklet to give to my family.
