Vintage Apron Pattern Sweet!

I hope Lucille Walker looked lovely without her apron. Poor lady never used the pattern, I'm sure she thought it would look really cute when her guests arrive for their dinner party. Maybe she was just a collector of patterns and had a lovely stash of fabric and to many kids underfoot that she never got around to making these wonderful aprons...whats funny is she made a scalloped pattern for the bottom of an apron out of a brown bag...its in the pattern. We'll at least we know who bought the pattern, that's important, she even put her address on the envelope, but not the city, that would have been tacky. lol. 35 cents this pattern cost Lucille. I hope I can get a bit more then that for it. lol...It'll be listed on my ebay.

This pattern is missing a lot of pieces. I'll give it to the first person that says they would like to have it.
Someone left a cabinet in one of the garages, the cabinet couldn't be salvaged,but I love the handles.
Kathy Grace is the winner of my giveaway. Thank you everyone that signed up. I LOVE all the wonderful words you came up with!! That was so much fun, I'm working on the next giveaway.

Laurie -
I love old patterns. The apron pattern is so quaint. I chuckled over the scallop pattern in the envelope. I find things like that occasionally when I buy unused old patterns. I have the baby pattern. It's a cutie! Since pieces are missing it would be cute for display. Thanks for sharing with us today.

Laurie, some patterns are so timeless, aren't they! Aprons and baby clothes especially.
