I was looking for this pattern online and found only one for $56.00 dollars. Now mind you this pattern only cost a quarter back in 1940!
I thought I really want this pattern but do I really want to pay $56.00 for it. Well, I put it in my shopping cart on one screen then thought let me see if I can find it on ebay. I typed in McCall's pattern number 884 and nothing....... how disappointing. Then I put into the search engine vintage apron pattern and 456 patterns popped up. I went through each and everyone of those patterns and look what I found!!! Yes, McCall's pattern 884 with a starting bid of $5.99 or a buy it now of $39.99. Was I feeling lucky? Should I just buy it now? Should I put in a high bid and just pray? Well I did the later and look what I won for $5.99! The pattern that I have been searching months for.
Now I did want to make sure this pattern got here safely so I asked for priority shipping, insurance and delivery confirmation. It arrived yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, now I am taking a vote.....what should the first apron I make look like? I was thinking lemon or lime color but I am open to any ideas. Shabby Chic? Lodge themed? ideas??????
