Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

I Need A Pattern

I know, I know, I have a million and twenty patterns. But I NEED this one, and I can't find it. Have you ever seen the movie Sarah, Plain and Tall on Hallmark? Love that movie. Anyway, she wears an apron in that movie that I want. I crave it. I covet it. I want it. Anybody seen that pattern or know where I can find it? I can't even find a picture of it! But it's a full apron and it doesn't seem to tie - it has armholes and I don't know how it comes together in the back.

I've seen the movie but it was so long ago that I can't remember her apron. Could it be that it crosses over at the back rather than ties??
Hugs,
Joy :o)

Saw the movie, loved the movie, just can't remember an apron. Sorry.

saw the movie, remember her wearing an apron but I don't remember how it was made. Do you remember what era the movie takes place in? I can't seem to remember, maybe if you remember the era you can do a search on apron patterns -- 1890 or whatever?

Have you tried Clotilde.com? They have an apron pattern that sounds similar. I made one for my DIL because she hates the ones that wrap around the neck. These are more like sleeveless shirts.

Gosh I thought google you culd find everything!
I have a couple of old apron patterns I will look at when I get home.
Glad you made it okay.
OH and I got a gift from the gun show yesterday. Camo ripstop pants. They are light weight, something I can wear when I mow grass and won't catch poison ivy etc.
Today we are going to some Chicken place that was featured on Diner, Drive in and dives.
Keep warm, it's -1 in JEf city, 20 here.

I just read another blog that I follow and she has a picture of a bunch of apron patterns. Maybe one of them fits the bill.

I vaguely remember a loose apron, looking very comfy, and covering a lot. I DID enjoy that movie -- gentle, soft, realistic, and no car explosions! LOL

When you find it and make it, please show us and remind us of Sara, Plain and Tall.

I'm reading that book with a couple of groups in Bethany's class. Love it. But that's the closest I can come.

You might be able to come up with a clip on YouTube that you could post so people can see it.

You CAN'T find it first!! I've been looking for it since you told me you wanted one months and months ago.

There is one seam in center of the back. I made my last one as a gift for a friend. The "back" covers the shouler blades. I made mine from a flour sack apron that a friend gave me. Had to make my pattern. I think this is simular to Sarah's
