Vintage Apron

Here you have it the vintage apron is now completed . It is a rather large apron and is meant to fit almost anyone I believe just by adjusting the tie around the waist , the shoulders actually sit lower almost like sleeves with a broad neckline , it would have been nice to have some reproduction prints to make this but the fabric I chose is definetly not new , I bought it some time ago at a country auction , the lady had obviously sewn a lot as there was boxes and boxes of fabric ,you probably can't see the fabric well , it has strawberries on it so I figured it was suitable for an apron . As you can see from an earlier post this is a Butterick pattern No. 8336 and I believe Ginger is correct that it is likely a 1957 -58 .Thanks for googling that for me Ginger .
