Vintage Apron Pattern

I couldn't help myself. It was a necessity. Slobs like me need full aprons; it's the only way to keep clothes unstained. But I can't stand to have something tie at the back of my neck. Then Vogue patterns were on sale and this retro apron caught my eye (#8740.) The fitted bib front goes on over the head. No straps to adjust, no sagging. Perfect! The scalloped hem used yards of seam binding which went on very easily.

The serendipitous feature is the wonderful waistband. It's the easiest I've ever applied. After basting the skirt and bib wrong sides together, encase that seam with the waistband which then turns UP! So clever. I will definitely use this technique again.

Fret not; enjoy the day.
