Aprons are a great way to protect your clothing while adding a bit of charming old-world style. This apron design was one Cynthia (long time Folkwear fan and employee) made from one her grandmother made and wore. Her grandmother drafted the pattern, offered in a 1900’s woman’s magazine that was borrowed from her mother. This pattern was such a useful favorite that she continued to make and wear it her entire life. Cynthia hardly remembers her not wearing some version of it no matter what she was doing.
Whether baking for the holidays, tidying the house, hanging out the laundry, gardening or sewing this apron will make any task a bit more charming. This apron is designed with built in straps that cross over in the back and button at the bib for easy access while providing full coverage. The pocket on the bib is the perfect place to store your eyeglasses, pen, or cellphone. Simply adjust the stitching to accommodate any object you need to keep handy. The two oversized patch pockets can be made with her grandmother’s own addition, a “tissue” pocket. The usefulness of this little pocket needs no explanation, but it is also a great place to keep rings while baking, cooking, or cleaning. The deep patch pockets allow for the perfect place to keep all kinds of things handy as you go about the day’s tasks.
This apron comes in a range of three sizes, Extra Small/Small, Medium/Large, and Extra Large/2XL. Sew it up for yourself or make as a gift to someone special. Make it to liven up your holiday making or simply to enhance your everyday chores.
And you get a favorite cookie recipe with this apron!
