Pretty Aprons

A "bachelor" cousin of my DH, collects craft books and magazines, when he sees them and saves them for me.  He was over recently and brought a huge plastic container full mostly of magazines.  I've had so much fun looking through them and picking out all sorts of small to medium projects to work on.

In one of them the Australian HOMEMADE Vol 25 No. 5 was this picture and pattern:

A lovely apron.  I've wanted to make one for a few years now.

So I've been busy sewing......

And now have these two pretty aprons.

I would love to find an old vintage apron pattern, one that isn't a strap around the neck but a nicer fit and finish at the back.  I saw Lucille Ball wearing a gorgeous one on "I Love Lucy" fabulous old black and white re-runs of comedy you can't beat.
