I’m so excited! My pattern arrived on Tuesday way ahead of when I was expecting it. When I placed the order, the Wearing History Patterns website stated to allow up to 10 days for it to ship out because they are printed to order.
The day after I placed the order for the apron pattern I headed over to Jo-Ann and bought the main fabric. Then to Hobby Lobby for the solid for the binding.
This is what I picked out.
Here’s a closer look. The print is from the Union Station collection from DS Quilts. I think it’s just the right look for my apron. The navy solid is a Robert Kaufman Kona. I’ll be making bias cut binding with it for the trim.
I know these are the right fabrics for this 1940s apron because my dad was in the Navy during WWII and when he left St. Louis to serve it was by train from Union Station.
Here’s my dad in his Navy uniform. I sure miss him! He gave me my love of 1940s music.
Alright then. I have a pattern and fabric. It’s time to get making! Sew For Victory!
