The Purple Floral Apron
Here is another apron that I made.
This apron was especially pleasing to me, as the buyer of it found me through my blog, in searching and looking for an old fashioned style apron. This apron was a Christmas gift, and the report was that the receiver was very pleased with it. This is a first for me-selling an apron through my blog. All of my other apron sales have been through my daughters etsy store-Marias Joy.

I was able to take photos of all of my fabrics, and this is the fabric that was specially chosen.

I appreciate that Maria is willing to be my model!
This apron is what I call a ‘Grandma Buttons Apron’. My husbands grandmother wore her aprons every day, and I was able to copy the apron pattern from one of her old aprons. Grandma Button was a very short waisted woman, and I had to alter the pattern to fit a regular womans size. I make the aprons in a misses size and a womens size. I have also made a few childs size aprons.
These aprons are very practical, providing full front coverage, with 2 large size, practical pockets on the front. All of the edges are bound in bias tape, and the inside seams are clean finished with serged seams. The fabric is machine wash and dry.
A few changes that we made, through Maria’s suggestion, was to add the ruffle along the bottom edge and to use the coordinating fabric for the pockets and ties-‘just for pretty’! Grandma Button would not have approved-it would have been too fancy for her!
