I know this really doesn't have anything to do with aprons....... but I just had to share this with you all!
Eva Dress ( a fabulous website selling repro patterns in multi-size) had a contest. It was a great jump start for creativeness! I made her 1929 Ladies Frock with Handkerchief Hem. I am really pleased with how it came out. I dug a length of peach silk habotai out of my stash. It wasn't the color I was picturing for this dress, so I dyed it a lovely salmony-pinky. The color came out perfect!
Don't you LOVE the flowers! They are made from a vintage 1920s pattern in my stash.

The skirt has a handkerchief hem. Meaning that it is cut in points. You can't really tell in the pictures very well, but there are points at center front, center back and each side. The bottom of the bodice is pointed too


  1. Heide I love the flower pic that is a good one.
    I hope she eva dress likes it!!!

  2. You are amazing!! I love the color of that dress and the style. I wish they would bring clothes like that back in vogue, along with hats. Even I may be inspired to wear a dress. :-) That's beautiful!
