Saturday Special: Mail Order 5984

September 28, 2013 at 11:48 am 2 comments

Gingham is such a versatile fabric! I can’t find a lot of information about this 1950s mail order apron pattern – or “gingham cobbler” as it’s so delightfully referred to on the sleeve – other than it was designed by Kate Marchbanks. Scouting around online, it appears she designed some lovely 50s frocks and needlecraft patterns. This one includes a cross-stitch chart for those cute apple pockets.

    When the children were small I used to wear aprons just like this one. I should make some more they were so nice. Thanks for reminding me.
