Free Sewing Pattern

This is a link to a free apron pattern
from 1940's. It can be made from an old dress or you can use new fabric.
It is easy to make - even for someone
with beginning sewing skills.
It can be made in Missy Sizes, Plus Sizes
or even Children's sizes if you adjust the measurements.
People were very frugal during WWII
because of lack of resources. Today we are learning to utilize our resources
by recycling. Enjoy!!!!

Aw, dang, hi Butterfly! I just found this group through a thrift-shopping-focused Yahoo group. Small world!

I love the rationing-ness of this pattern, what's that old chestnut, "make do and mend" I think? Those details fascinate me, I love learning about how people got along. But the link seems to have gone.

Hi, Rainbow! Yeah, it does look as if the link is no longer good and I haven't made an apron yet, LOL.

This link isn't working any more. Does anyone have a copy of this apron pattern they could send me?
