I make all my own seam binding to coordinate with the fabric I am using. This binding is in a yellow floral print. I love the small white flowers on the blue fabric. A little flower button and yellow ribbon complete the look on the bodice.
Deep pockets are also common on vintage aprons. To hold little items of necessity..maybe a few bobby pins, a few scraps of paper with notes scribbled on them, a small toy, a hanky or maybe small things that need to be put away when one has the time.
The apron strings are long so as to fit a waist of almost any size. The shoulder strings have two buttonholes to make adjusting a little simpler. They can be worn straight, as shown, or crisscrossed. Whichever is more comfortable.
All of the items I make have, of course, the name tag but also a little silver dog charm. My signature. I have several different ones that I use.
I love vintage aprons. They speak so much of the housewives from generations ago. I'm glad they are making a comeback. Alot of vintage things are coming back into vogue. Even though I was very young during this era, seeing the styles, story books and decorating from my childhood days brings back some memories and such a sweet feeling of nostalgia. What's your take on this "new" style?
Okay, time to do my commercial: In case you are interested, this particular apron style comes in small, medium and large. I also have this fabric available in a pretty shade of green if blue is not your color. If you want to know more about this apron or some of the other things I sell, you can contact me or just check out what I have in my Etsy store. The end.
Hope your autumn day is beautiful where you are ~
