Vintage Pattern

This week I thought I would showcase a sewing pattern and the delights of Mount Dora in Florida.  The pattern is a Simplicity embroidery, pattern and applique transfer for an apron with gingerbread pot holders.  It is an American pattern originally priced at 15c.  It made me smile as even now it is on trend with the gingerbread motif.  As popular now as I am sure it was then.  It was purchased at a cost of $1 from a lovely lady with a stall at the Vintage Garden Show, Renningers Mount Dora.  Not in particularly good condition, it appears to be well used.  I thought it was unusual having an applique transfer and embroidery directions included - not something I have come across before.

 A fascinating find on a visit to Renningers Mount Dora, one of the highlights of our holiday last spring.


Does it get any better than that?  Yes it does actually, there is also a farmers and flea market at the top end of the site.  Another wonderful place to rummage for that perfect find.

 I couldn't resist bringing the apron back for my own craft room and fill the pockets with the details of future events.

Happy hunting!
