I work in theatre – and for some reason, last year was the year of the apron. Almost every production I worked on featured aprons of some sort – from mid-19th c. aprons for ‘Jane Eye’ to some super cute 30′s aprons for ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’ and ‘Brighton Beach Memoirs’.
I used this ad copy from a mid-30′s Sears catalog as my source material:
I drafted a pattern for the apron on the bottom right – cute bib, curved collar, bias edging. The stripes made into self-bias make me deliriously happy.
