Oh, memories of my Grandmother and her aprons. She wore one all day, and kept a threaded needle and some safety pins stuck in it, because you never know when you'll need to take a stitch or fix something. That style was about the same as hers. She was no seamstress, though. I bet your grandmother looked at that buttonhole and thought - hah, it's just an apron. Thanks for sharing yours. I'm thinking of looking for a 1/4" foot for stitching in the ditch. I'm a failure there, too.


Nice work! I always wear an apron when I cook and prefer one that covers my shirt in front and doesn't tie around my neck. Your grandma and I would have agreed on this style.


It looks very good, handmade beats shop-bought any day. The fabric does look very 1960s.
