Every once and while people will write asking if we (my sister and I, who ran a modest apparel business out of out home for several years) accept custom orders. This month has been the month for such requests. And guess what they are? Aprons! =)
An etsy customer wrote asking if she were to send in her own fabric, if I could make her six aprons out of the 1940's "Gracie" style. Of course I said yes, and so this week I've been working on cutting them all out, and have two sewn up already. They are turning out pretty cute, if I do say so myself!
The other custom order is for four aprons in a style similar to the 1950's "Margaret" apron. My sister and I will share this order. It is this dear 80+ year old lady's pattern, and Erin took her my other styles to see if she might like something different, but no, she liked her own pattern with no pockets, no rick rack.
I can't imagine an apron without a pocket or rick rack! Can you?
