Pinnies, aprons, smocks or pinafores


I mentioned in a previous post that I thought I was going to do some sewing, well I did.

I have made three “retro” aprons. I thoroughly enjoyed making them, I even made the bias tape to go around two of the aprons.

  1. These are great. I love the retro look!

      I really enjoyed making these and making the bias binding for the edging. I used a little gadget for making the bias tape and it was so easy.

      My favourite one is the green and white one. I like the fact that there are no ties or buttons.

    Just love them all!

      I can’t resist a lovely pinny, or a tea towel either!

  4. Wonderful! I should use a pinny. I’m often covered in flour before I remember I should have put one on. I need to get into the habit of wearing one, I think.

      It is vital for me when I am cooking otherwise I end up spoiling my clothes.

      1. It was only when I was halfway through making a batch of scones this morning that I remembered your post. By that time I had probably spilt as much flour on myself as I was going to, so yet again I failed to use the pinny. I need to try and remember!

          Put your pinny in a prominent place so you spot it when you need it.

          1. Good advice. It’s hanging on a hook in the kitchen but I’ve stopped seeing it.

    Well I’m happy to say that I am the happy recipient of two of those lovely aprons.I need them every day. They are perfect in every way. Love them both. John thinks the Red and yellow one makes me look like a supermum!
    Thank you for your kindness my big sister.
    Btw I worked out the ruffle/ neck on the nightie. Forgot about the instructions and kinda worked it out. Maybe some things are too simple to put on paper!Thanks for your input. Hope you are enjoying time with Fiona and Tim.

      Thanks Megsy. You are a super mum. John is quite right.
      We have had a lovely time and were able to catch up with James too.
      Glad you got the nightie sorted.

  6. So cute!. I wouldn’t want to get the apron dirty! Much better to mess up my old tees and sloppy pants than spoil a work of art.

      I think I must just be an apron type of person. I tend to wear one more often than not when I am cooking.

    Where did you get the pattern for these? They’re lovely!

      Hi Susan, I have done a reblog of the pinny post today so if you look at the blog again you will find a picture of the patterns I used. I hope this helps.
