A brown envelope showed up in the mail to me one day last summer.
Inside the brown envelope was another brown envelope. The second one, on the inside, was the inspiring one. An original pattern envelope that was mailed in October of 1950.
So far I have made an apron skirt following the exact step by step instructions of the Marian Martin Sew-Chart.
The instructions even have the layout pattern for using a feed bag however it does specifically state that it will only work for a size small.
I have completed the apron skirt and am still working on the bib.
The skirt has been repurposed from a christening gown lining and the hankie was collected from a garage sale in New Brunswick, Canada.
The binding along the pocket edge and the skirt hemline are not true vintage pieces however they hold the feel together.
I have the fabrics set aside and will finish this piece in the near future. Keep checking back for a follow up post showing the completed 1950's replica.
Thanks for visiting,
