Southern Searsucker/Seersucker Apron

 


Who among you like searsucker or seersucker fabric? I personally do. It is a crisp cotton fabric that seems to say, "Use me in anything to wear in warm weather". When I think of Spring and Summer here in the South that is always on my mind!

Today's apron is made from some of this fabulous fabric and I like it!




Shown here on a warm summer's day at Hibiscus House




My old Mannequin is from a retail store I worked with.
It is a size 8 the size I was at the time.
This apron is a One Size Fits Most
It does run the sizes pretty well

We are really enjoying it! I don't regret having it painted in the color, as you know if you follow.

The crisp fabric and premium cotton/poly trims are as nice as can be found
The Searsucker is a premium cotton





Look at the pretty lined pocket with rick rack trim
If that doesn't say vintage pattern I don't know what would
This is a Cora 2 pattern which is an adaptation of my grandmother/great grandmother's pattern
The original pattern is well over one hundred years old!
I know they would be smiling yet humbled by me using their patterns.
I adjusted this bib to be wider for more coverage.

One-Of-A-Kind no other will be sold in this fabric. It is a great utility apron.

This full apron is made from premium cotton seersucker fabric. Trims/notions premium cotton or cotton/polyester.

This is a Cora 2 wider bib apron version of the original Cora Heirloom family pattern. The original pattern has been in my family for over one hundred years. I have one of my great grandmother's aprons to this day.
