New! Instant Download now available on all individually purchased patterns(Meaning not part of one of my pattern bundles). Vintage Betty a women's apron pattern by Little Bird Lane. This pattern is for a reproduction 1930's feedsack style kitchen or work apron. It requires just one yard of fabric and can be made in 2 sizes. Misses average small/med (one size fits most) and misses large/x-large. I modeled my pattern after authentic feedsack fabric aprons of the 1930's and 1940's from estate and antique store finds. This is a digital file PDF pattern with printable pattern pages, photos and complete instructions. Simply print the actual pattern pages on regular 8.5 x 11 paper. Tape them together and follow the instructions. This item is sewn with a regular sewing machine. Pearls Pinny is very quick and easy to make. It makes a very nice gift or craft fair item. Adorable made with vintage fabrics and linens or vintage reproduction fabrics. Finished length approximately 34 to 35 inches long from shoulder and 9 to 10 inches wide across the upper bodice.

Just send a message through Etsy and I'll get it resent.. You will need a pdf reader program to view this file.
You will need 1 yard of fabric, folded on the bias and 9 yards of 1/4" wide double fold bias trim. If you only trim the tops of the pockets with bias trim, then you will only need 6 to 8 yards of 1/4" wide double fold bias trim.
*In addition to fabric, you will need basic sewing tools and supplies. Understanding of basic sewing skills. A little practice and experience with easy projects, knowledge of basic sewing terms.

Sewing machine and or serger/overlocker, knowledge of clothing seam finishes using the machines you own. Scissors, measuring tape, thread etc...Plush toys or dolls will not require the use of a serger/overlocker and for most clothing it is handy, but optional.
