This is a sewing pattern for a very practical utility era apron made from odds and ends and scraps of fabric dating from the wartime make do and mend 1940s when everything was in short supply. We provide full size paper pieces in an option of 2 sizes- up to a 38ich chest or 40-46 inch chest, and full instructions of how to put them together. This would be lovely made with vintage print fabrics, or pretty ginghams in different colours....once you have made it once and understand the process you should also be able to adapt it to make matching smaller ones for kiddies in the kitchen. These make great gifts and are good items to sell too. These aprons were designed to be made and worn by 'Britains Unsung Heroes'- the army of women who stayed at home and made sure their households survived intact during the wartime rationing years
