A New Apron Pattern

This really isn't my new pattern, but my sister's. I talked her into letting my borrow it to share here. I love version A. Can't you envision it in a colorful floral? Or even a gingham?
I had to share the envelope back too. Some of the details are hard to catch. Did you notice the straps button on top of the shoulder?
Copyright 1971. McCall's is always so helpful about putting the copyright on their patterns.
I can't wait to try this pattern out! But I don't know when it will happen....... I have a one track mind right now..........House!!
 
P.S. I apologize for last week's lack of posts, very busy week at work.

  1. Version A looks like a plastic that Emma Peel from the Avengers would wear. Could it be that it's from the 60s or 70s? And yes, it would look much better in one of the fabrics you suggested.

    Sorry I'm so far behind in visiting blogs!

    1. Lol! Yes, very Emma Peel.
      I forgot to mention it apparently can also be used for a beach cover up!

  2. I have this pattern too, and just made one from version A, in a soft green and pink print and trimmed it with pink bias tape. Very, very simple to make.

    1. I hadn't seen it before either, or maybe I haven't paid attention! I tend to pass up patterns from the 70s as being to "modern". Lol!

  4. I just found your lovely blog and I am so excited. When I read your profile, I knew that I would have to follow. Then I took a look at some of your posts, and believe it or not your home is almost a carbon copy of the one my daughter just bought. Her's was built in the 1930's and she is loving living there and has plans to gradually remodel it as she lives there. Even the little built-in mail-box beside the door, is like her's :)
    We have some mutual followers so I think that we were destined to cross paths at some point. I love aprons, old vintage mixing bowls are one of my true weaknesses. I'm always coming home with a "new to me" one that I find at a yard sale or thrift store. My sweet husband laughs and says, "Oh, that's what we have been needing, another mixing bowl", LOL
    I would like to take this opportunity to invite you over to follow me back. I have met the nicest people in blog-land :)
    Your newest blogging sister, Connie :)
