1912 Child’s Apron

In Uncategorized on March 18, 2012 at 11:41 pm

As a member of Vintage Pattern Library’s 1912 Project, I requested to sew children’s garments.

My first assignment is this darling embroidered smock from La Mode Illustre 1912.

I used navy blue organic cotton/linen for the smock, with dove grey linen binding as the border.

The pockets are a lovely art nouveau design and the front of the smock is adorned with a beach scene of two children playing; one is sailing a boat while the other is riding a hobby-horse.  The design was very intricate to embroider.

Overall I’m happy with the outcome and enjoyed the project.
