Naturally, research takes actual imagery acquisitions... you know, so that proper references can be made, so that I can properly draft the patterns. Well, that's my story & I'm sticking to it!
Besides yet again, think of all the uses I can put these awesome ephemera to once my research has come to an end ~ I can frame them & hang them all over my sewing room walls for instant inspiration! ;-D
So here are some of the images that I have aquired thus far. I will add more as I get them.
The ones I am listing today come from a 1927 - 1928 Herrschner Needlwork Catalog.
Aren't these old apron patterns just delightful!? I have drafted several patterns based on the ones shown here, and I am just going to make them out of old percale sheeting. I happen to have a few old pink 100% cotton percale sheets, which I believe are the correct color, I think I will probably bind them in either a vintage green or a vintage blue bias tape. I don't know if I will be able to get them embroidered, however.
