Three Great Vintage Apron Sewing Books

A look at three books that feature vintage aprons, along with instructions on how to make them.

Top Ten All American Novel Aprons - 1940's Apron Patterns with Complete Cutting and Sewing Instructions

First published by the White Sewing Machine Company in 1840, Top Ten All American Novel Aprons - 1940's Apron Patterns with Complete Cutting and Sewing Instructions is a must for any apronista who loves all things vintage.

The book features well-written and clear instructions, which are accompanied by charming illustrations and diagrams, making the book's patterns easy to follow and use.

Aprons - 21 Vintage Patterns and Styles

Aprons - 21 Vintage Patterns and Styles was originally published by the J P; Coats Company in 1945, and this reprint has an entirely new fan base full of vintage enthusiasts.

The book features twenty-one different patterns that include matching mother and daughter aprons as well as father and son barbecue aprons. You can also find patterns for a sateen coverall apron, a taffeta party apron, peasant apron, a heart apron, a sewing apron, an organdie apron, a plaid ruffled apron, and an apron that features potholder corners.

Aprons - 21 Vintage Patterns and Styles includes reduced size patterns with instructions for increasing them, instructions, and illustrations for each apron.

Aprons and Bibs - Over 30 Vintage Sewn and Crocheted Ideas

Aprons and Bibs - Over 30 Vintage Sewn and Crocheted Ideas is another book that was originally published in 1945 by the American Thread Company, and is back for a whole new generation of apronistas to enjoy.

Included in Aprons and Bibs - Over 30 Vintage Sewn and Crocheted Ideas are instructions for a heart apron, cocktail apron, tea apron, two glamour aprons, an apron to wear over an evening gown, an apron to wear over slacks, a baby bath apron, and a knitting apron. Also included are two men's aprons (one for gardening and one for cooking), as well as several projects for children. The book includes complete project instructions and illustrations for each apron. Unfortunately, the book does assume that the reader is an advanced seamstress, who is capable of drawing out their own patterns, which makes it difficult for someone just learning to sew to make any of the aprons found in the book.
