Apron Retro 54

Hello Everybody today's newest apron is from 1954

Retro Butterick  B5435
I made a version of view B with the flowing circular skirt, pocket with flower applique and button in center.  I love the way the ric rac wraps around the pocket and rolls up and down at the bottom of skirt.  This is a size Large apron which is only 1 1/2" difference in waistband and frankly it makes not much difference on my size 8 mannequin.  I am sure you could use this pattern in this size from small to extra large.  I thoroughly enjoyed making this apron and intend to make the other views.  I hope you enjoy this trip I am taking on aprons. I will be making different things for sure as I go along from some clothing to clay crafts, crochet and knit items. Thanks for visiting and looking.  I do have to say thought that my pictures do not do the fabric justice.  It is a soft pattern but it is prettier in person.

Now I must make a solid yellow and add more flowers like this one isn't it cute?
