Patron-Modele A 75282 - Tablier (Apron)


Mid 1930's.  

Aprons from the 1930's generally have very nice lines, and the French do justice in this model.  The little advertising slip found with the pattern pieces assures you that their patterns are always the most stylish for today (which is neither that of yesterday nor of tomorrow.)


The description of the apron translates roughly as:
The apron is gathered slightly into the bodice descending into a point at center front. A bias fabric borders the square neckline; sleeve caps fall over the arms.
I like the illustrations on the front showing the construction.  There is no separate instruction sheet.

Adorable!

Looks like it could easily be adapted into a sundress, too.

I *love* this apron.

I have a suspicion that if I were to have an apron popularity contest, this one would win by a mile. I think that only the French can manage to be so tidy-looking and so fashionable all at once.

This is an absolutely darling pattern! Andrea, just where do you find all your wonderful old patterns... I am quite in awe of your collection.

Really, I owe the majority of my collection to eBay. Every six weeks or so I crawl through the patterns listings. I'll also do some global searches in the event items have been mis-categorized. I've found some wonderful patterns this way, particularly for obsolete brands that don't ring any bells with the sellers. But there aren't any magic tricks to it.

Fabulous - actually very practical and wearable! Wish I could get one. I saw something a little similar in Muji (unfortunately only in a Small or Medium...)
