This was going to be next month’s apron, but then I realized I really wanted to make a Valentine apron for February, so now this is January Apron Giveaway, Part 2.
The apron includes the pocket from the newspaper illustration I posted earlier, but I used a 1970s pattern from my collection for the shape. The pattern is a size 3, but I have shown it on my size 3/4 dress form, with a size 4 dress, and I think it could be worn by little girls size 2 & 3, and maybe 4 as well, if they’re small. The dress is not part of the giveaway — I just thought the apron looked weird on the mannequin without some clothing underneath. I purchased the apron fabric from the Goodwill; it is heavy-ish like canvas, and it feels like cotton to me, but it could be some kind of blend. The binding is a tiny Michael Miller printed gingham.
The closures will be large buttons in a color that coordinates with the apron. I’ll have to go to the fabric store for those, and I wanted to take these photos today.
Just let me know in the comments below if you would like to enter to win this apron. I will use the random number generator to select a winner on Saturday, January 31.
