elvisstax - I really like the yoke on that!

I have a request from a friend on my Livejournal for an apron made from cherry fabrics and I found one with large cherries, but that's the kind of fabric I really wanted. :-/

Thank you!  I'm a slut for ric-rac (and bias tape, but that's a different story).

Hmmm-- the white came from the "Keepsake Cottons" section at my teeny-tiny Joann, and the black came from the novelty cottons section.

And it's a McCall's pattern, I think.  If anyone cares, I can dig up the pattern number.

Ah! Love that apron! The contrast on the yoke and pockets is darling.

So I was digging through some of my vintage Needlecraft magazines, looking for some inspiration, and thought I'd share a few of the aprons in them. These are all from 1921 issues.
