Church Ladies' Apron - by Mary Mulari - One Size fits Most - Paper Pattern This apron pattern was inspired by a vintage 1950's apron with bias tape wrapped edges, a tiny pocket, and a single layer of fabric. The apron was a style commonly worn by ladies serving food in church basements. This pattern updates the style and adds modern, common sense details like double or single pockets sewn at a slant so it's easy to get your hands inside and a neck yoke that can be adjusted for individual fit.The apron is reversible so one yard of fabric is required for each side. Decorate the apron front or pockets with machine embroidery, sew a Velcro® closure for an opening in the neck yoke to avoid ruining your hairdo, or mix and match fabrics so that all sections of the apron feature different prints. There's lots of possibilities for this pattern! Make one for yourself and for gifts too.
This pattern honors women everywhere who prepare and serve food in church basements and fellowship halls. Special honor to the memory of my mother, Helmi Koski, and the women of St. Mark's Lutheran Church of Palo, MN.

Used patterns will be checked and double checked to make sure all necessary pieces and instructions are included to the best of our ability. Some used patterns will have markings and notations from previous owners. Some packaging will have signs of use, but we will make every effort to ensure that it is in usable condition. Patterns that are cut will have what size was cut noted in the title and in the description. Envelopes may be rumpled, creased, worn on the edges, or have tears. Some are stamped, have areas where stickers were removed, or writing. Vintage envelopes and patterns may have stains or yellowing due to age. This is normal. Factory folded means it has not been used and still folded in the package as it was when new.
