Here is a unusual find if you love old aprons! A Butterick apron pattern printed November 1898. A gored long apron style with shoulder straps fastening at the back of waist. The pattern also included a sleeve protector. This is an unmarked tissue paper pattern with the directions on the back of the envelope. Pattern pieces are complete.
Tissue pieces are in decent condition. Envelope does have its tears and loss of paper. However, the important facts are there. For well over 100 years old and the fragile nature, it is truly remarkable it is still preserved. What a fun bit of history!
