Victory Apron Finished

My copy of this victory apron is slightly different from the pattern.  The original version had side seams, and mine is a one-piece circle; my pockets are larger, because I like to be able to actually put stuff in them and the pockets on the original apron seemed smallish; and finally my waistband is not contoured, but I added some striped cording in the seam.  The rick-rack star thing was kind of fun — purchased embroidered stars would work too, but they wouldn’t have the cute 3-dimensional effect.

A white apron would be a bad choice for me since I am a very messy cook.  Of course, if you were only going to be serving little sandwiches from a tray, interrupted by the occasional dance, a white apron would probably be just fine.

I hope Lynn likes my version of the apron. On Sunday she sent me the following message:

“I’m a veteran and it’s extra special to win a red, white and blue apron today! Thanks so very much!”
