Product Description

Wearing History #4007

1940's Apron Pattern

Bust Sizes 32"-44"

I'm pleased to offer the first Beginner difficulty pattern from Wearing History!  This pattern features a cute scalloped apron skirt that is cut on the bias, scalloped shoulder straps that attach with a button at the back, two back straps, and ties! This pattern can be made either in one fabric or in two constrasting fabrics.  The apron can either be finished with bias binding or with bias facing.

This pattern was based on an original period 1940s pattern but has been extensively updated while still retaining a period fit.  included are step-by-step illustrated instructions, cutting layouts for modern 45" fabric widths, and multiple sizes per packet.  Sewing both verisons of this apron calls for pre-made purchased bias binding.  It is suggested to have a little knowledge on mitering corners of bias binding or facing to make these aprons, as the binding/facing is the most difficult part of construction.  As an extra bonus, I am adding bias binding and bias facing photo tutorials to my blog to help with apron construction. You can find the how-to posts here.

This pattern is multisize and includes all sizes in the same packet.  The sizing is as follows:

Small- Bust 32"-34"  Waist 26"-28"

Medium- Bust 36"-38" Waist 30"-32"

Large- Bust 40"-42" Waist 34"-36"

XL- Bust 44"-46" Waist 38"-40"

The waist of the pattern is adjustable by the back ties.

BORROWING FROM THE 1940's IDEA OF CONSERVING FABRIC, CUTTING CHARTS GIVEN REQUIRE PIECES TO BE CUT BOTH ON GRAIN AND CROSSGRAIN. DIRECTIONAL FABRICS WILL REQUIRE MORE FABRIC THAN GIVEN ON THE YARDAGE CHART AND IS NOT SHOWN IN CUTTING CHARTS. APRON BIB IS CUT ON BIAS AND IS UNSUITABLE FOR DIRECTIONAL PRINTS.

    I found this pattern while searching Pinterest for an apron to make for a friend's birthday. I loved it from the moment I saw it. The directions were easy to understand and follow. The video tutorials on the bias binding were very helpful. My friend, and everyone else, LOVED the apron. Now my daughter wants one! :)

    I love this apron pattern. The directions for sewing are easy to follow. I would certainly recommend this pattern to anyone interested in a period apron. Such fun.

    ...but am so excited to start on my first apron! But, I can't do it today, because I am brain-dead from the election results!
