Vintage Apron Love

Isn’t this pattern fun? I love the idea of making one for each month of the year, with the darling embroidery patterns for each month, but alas, I am no good at embroidery, and I suspect that even if I were, it’s something I’d just never get around to. Somehow my wee ladies keep me too busy! So, on to eBay it has gone…

It’s a half apron, with a cumberbund style waistband. The pattern is on unmarked tissue. Included were detailed instructions, and twelve iron on embroidery patterns, one for each month of the year.

I even found the envelope interesting. It is marked with a stamped two-cent stamp, and says “PARADE” “Patterns by Pauline” in the return address. In the address slot, is a newspaper clipping which the addressee apparently clipped, filled out, and mailed to the company, in order to request this pattern. The vintage way of life just seems utterly charming and interesting to me!
