For the HSF Challenge 25: 1 m – I decided to make something simple. As the prevous challenge been a pretty demanding dress (1840s checkered green dress), I needed to slow down a bit and make a simple yet versetile and wearable piece.
The remaning fabric was a 0,3 x 2,5 m long piece. And I decided to make an apron out of it, even though it ment piecing three pieces of 75cm fabric togheter.
So that’s what I did.
Cutting the long strip in three pieces and piecing them to each other at the vertical seams, and whipstiched them down. Then I gattered the waist, sewed on a waisband with ties and hemed the whole thing.
Quick and simple.
Just the facts:
Challenge: 25: 1 m.
What: A Simple Apron.
Fabric: A leftover piece of 2,5 x 0,3 m ivory cotton voile.
How Historical accurarte: I didn’t use any historical model when making this apron, but figured they were made aproxemetly the same way all through history. So I give it a 7/10.
Cost: 0 Sek (Stash and remaning pieces project)
Time: About 5 hours.
First worn: On the 19th century theemed christams party dec 14.
