Dorothy’s retro apron pattern lives on

Pattern from the Dorothy Epperson Collection

My retro Simplicity pattern (3 styles plus a potholder!) comes to me from my friend Mary. Her mother was a wonderful seamstress who sewed all the clothes her family wore. this was evident when I visited the house and saw a room-full of boxes filled with patterns, sewing supplies, and fabric.

The pattern has a postal zone code, not a ZIP code which indicates it predates July 1, 1963. The cost? Just 40 cents (You have to sell out $9-11 for a vintage apron pattern from simplicity today- a 22 fold increase!)

Soon, the pattern will be used to cut a new apron to use in the kitchen-just in time for canning season. I just hope I make Mrs. Epperson proud.
