  2. 1928 One-yard Bias Cut "Flapper" Apron by Decades of Style Quickview

    1928 One-yard Bias Cut "Flapper" Apron by Decades of Style

    This wonderful apron from 1928 is the answer to the question, "what can you make out of 1 yard of fabric??" It is cut on the bias and is designed to be made from a 36" square of fabric. The drape is great and it fits everyone. We played around with it and found we also liked the 2-yard reversible version. Also included is a child-sized apron pattern. It will fit the 8-12 year old but we also got it to work for a 5-year old by pleating up the length at the waist and tying it snugly. It is amazingly cute! There is only one size for the adult pattern because it is designed to use exactly one yard of fabric. Rest assured, it fits just about everyone as is! Because of the bias cut, some vertical and horizontal print designs are not appropriate. Category:1920's

  3. 1940's Apron from Val's Kitchen by Decades of Style Quickview

    1940's Apron from Val's Kitchen by Decades of Style

    My friend, Val Esway, totally rocks in her music and in her cooking! This pattern is based on Val's favorite vintage apron. It was in very sad shape when I rescued it from her kitchen and took it off to give it a new life as a vintage pattern reproduction. I think you are going to love the results. The apron has a separate neck piece, a heart-shaped pocket and it provides full frontal coverage for cooking. The edges are finished with bias binding. You can make this one out of just a bit more than one yard of fabric. Go out, get some great cotton and have fun sewing! Category:1940's

This vintage apron pattern is for a smock-style apron with a sweet tulip pocket. All edges are finished with fold-over bias tape. Category:1950's

  5. 1930s Beach Romper by Decades of Style Quickview

    1930s Beach Romper by Decades of Style

Halter style on the top, this romper is anchored by a skort and wrap skirt combination on the bottom. It features very clever style lines cut on the bias.
