The Rooster Apron

This is the apron that was made from the Vintage McCall's Pattern 1143
The year for pattern 1944 approximately 68 years old
It is so fragile I had to copy and remake.
It was so good to finally find the pattern though because it was a hard one to find.
I have a lot of chicken lovers in my friends' list.
This one was a custom order.
I just wanted to share it with you.

  4. That is so cute! I have some vintage apron patterns but I've only used them once. I keep thinking they would be a really nice gift made in vintage repro fabric.

  9. I'm a big fan of aprons and have several. I think they've lost popularity and that's a shame. I never cook or bake without one on.
