>Day 32 of an apron a day….

front

This, I think, is the third true smock apron in the collection; yesterday was the second, and the first was posted in July. This type of apron is slipped on by pulling your arms forward and then it is tied in back with nothing going over the head, so nothing pulls on your neck. It has two pockets and is made up of 7 pieces of fabric, not counting bindings. This is a very practical apron because it covers most of your upper clothing. Just not a very fun style to look at, but that is easily changed with fabric choices and embellishments. This apron has seen a lot of use.

This apron style was popular from the 30 – 60’s. But this is more than likely the 40’s.

I was a substitute teacher yesterday for the Second Grade class I used to teach. It was real fun to see the children again and get to say bye-bye to them this time. I also had them write their names on an apron for me to keep. Sad 4 students were absent so I didn’t get their names. May not be a pretty start to an apron to any body but me, but I love it. I used a pattern I drafted off of one of GGH aprons minus the flaps and pocket. Still have to add the waistband and ties to it; will probably do that this weekend.
