I Beat The Monday Blues YEEHA!

in 1940s

Having decided to be a bit more organised than I was over the weekend and truly dear reader that’s not too hard given that I achieved diddly squat due to an overly active creative brain that resulted in total inertia!!

After a good rummage in my drawers I found the vintage pattern I was looking for. After a few modifications to suit I got stuck in and must confess to being more than slightly pleased with the finished article. It will be joining me at Judys Vintage Fair at Spitalfields in November along with my growing stash that I shall be attempting to sell for good old English Pounds :)

Simple yet gorgeous I think! Hope you agree ?

Mum taught me to sew from the age of 4 starting with a pencil case, 44 years on I make anything and everything but take special pleasure in gowns of every description, Bridal, Ball, Christening and the like. If I can source vintage fabric and findings all the better, I love for there to be a story behind each piece.

If I lived in England, which I do not, I would love to go to your vintage fair. Cute apron!

Adorable! And reminds me that I really need to make me some vintage aprons! I have several really charming patterns and no lack of fabric! Must keep this in mind for when I need some instant gratification sewing. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Carolyn,

Aren’t they just perfect for the feel good factor. I so enjoyed making it and my daughters who are far too young to remember Pinny’s as we used to call them, being worn. My Nan had one for every possible occasion! And yes, as a younger woman she even wore slip n slippers with fluffy fronts. How glam!
