Note: June's original website has changed during this giveaway, but she offers this book for sale via email.
I have a new type of giveaway for all you TAG ladies this week! It's a pattern book written and compiled by June Bartos, which provides vintage apron styles as shown at Dorothy's Aprons and Handmade Memories. For all you ladies who sew this weeks giveaway is right up your apron...hee, hee!
This book contains 20 practical patterns in the style of the early 20th century (1900's) which you can sew yourself. The patterns must be enlarged prior to sewing and directions are provided in the book explaining how to instruct the photocopy center where you do your enlargements. Also, this is not a "beginners" book for a total rookie seamstress.
The book primarily features adult aprons but has a few youth or children's patterns too. The apron styles vary between causal to formal and are mostly from the 1920's and 1930's. What is old is new and the styles shown are perfect for 2010! The patterns in this lovely book include a darling "Flapper" style apron. I can also admit to being very fond of the Ladies Tea Frock.
With these patterns you can completely customize your apron to fit you perfectly construct it from a fabric of your exacting taste.
To enter the drawing for a copy of this book visit Dorothy's site and look a the apron styles in the book. Come back and leave a comment on your favorite one. Please remember to leave an email address if you do not have a blog site.
