40′s inspired apron

in 1940s,Aprons

As I have this magazine named “La Familia” (The family) from July 1949, I decided to use one of the embroider patterns that come with it; I tryed to do the apron as the lady in the picture. My apron is not very full so it looks kind of funny.
By the way, the blouse I am wearing is Butterick 4985, a moder pattern.
I tryed to edit this post but I see I don’t know how to do it correctly because I did not wanted the order of the pictures like this :(

The apron is cute and the embroidery adds a charming touch!

Yikes – I just ordered the top, too!
Like the apron, and don’t think the embroidery looks at all funny, if you’ll pardon my saying. So nice to see a vintage Spanish magazine – is it from Mexico or Spain?

Hi! Looks really cute. Did you make the apron? If so, could you point me to a pattern?
