I went to visit my neighbor one day and she was wearing this apron. Someone had given it to her years ago, and it was well worn and threadbare. I loved that it just slipped over your head and has no ties, covered you front and back and looked cute too. I asked her if I could take a pattern off from it. I changed the pockets and added some rickrack. The first apron that I made I gave to her. Thanks Janice!! We all love your apron.
