This apron is based on one my mother in law has that belonged to her mother. [Edit: I believe it was from the 1940s]. It’s not put together the way we would do it these days. The side seams are stitched with the wrong sides together and the seams bound on the outside with 1/4″ bias tape for decoration. The rest of the raw edges are given the same bias binding treatment.

I altered an existing pattern and didn’t like the way it had the pockets over the seams. If I avoided the seams and moved the pockets to the outside they wouldn’t be very useful so I stacked them in the center instead.

I think I’ll make this one again. =)
