I think of Grandma making pies

These aprons are so cool! Some time ago I purchased a large lot of vintage patterns off of ebay. This pattern from 1946 was in the box. I love the style, probably because it reminds me so much of my Grandma Faria! I purchased the 'retro' 30's fabric too many years ago to admit, but it was specifically for this pattern.....good things come to those that wait.

Back yoke button and tied at back waist; single layer fabric with bias cut bound edges.

OK, I'm thinking of doing a portrait of you wearing one of these, doing something Grandma-ish... peeling apples? rolling out pie dough? standing at the sink, washing pans with "Dutch Cleanser"? folding aluminum foil for a second use? cooking chorizo and beans? You pick!
Love these aprons!
