This week I have had a go at making some aprons, one is a retro apron pattern that I think is from the fifty’s, the other one is the Sew Liberated Lola Apron pattern that is available from TrixieLixie.
I made the Lola apron first as the pattern and instructions for the vintage apron didn’t seem to be complete. I used gorgeous red gingham, ric-rac and spotty lace trim bias binding. I think it has a very Cow-girl feel to it. The instructions are very clear and it was very easy to make.
Next I tackled the vintage pattern which only had 2 pieces and very limited instructions,however having made the Lola I managed to bluff my way through this pattern and I even used some trimmed bias binding to finish it off. It was in fact quite easy and is really lovely,. The skirt part is almost a full circle so you can really twirl around the kitchen in this one.
