My copy of this victory apron is slightly different from the pattern. The original version had side seams, and mine is a one-piece circle; my pockets are larger, because I like to be able to actually put stuff in them and the pockets on the original apron seemed smallish; and finally my waistband is not contoured, but I added some striped cording in the seam. The rick-rack star thing was kind of fun — purchased embroidered stars would work too, but they wouldn’t have the cute 3-dimensional effect.
A white apron would be a bad choice for me since I am a very messy cook. Of course, if you were only going to be serving little sandwiches from a tray, interrupted by the occasional dance, a white apron would probably be just fine.
I hope Lynn likes my version of the apron. On Sunday she sent me the following message:
“I’m a veteran and it’s extra special to win a red, white and blue apron today! Thanks so very much!”
