No. 2882 is a splendid idea. It fits up high around the neck, and extends to the bottom of the dress. The long sleeves are a special feature.
This apron is cut on sacque lines, perfectly plain across the shoulders and front, but hangs with a little fullness from below the bust.
The garment closes all the way down the back. It may be worn as a wrapper or kimono, with no underdress, if desire.
Beside being a practical apron, there is an element of good taste about it. There are a chic rolling collar, two nice large patch-pockets, and comfortable bishop sleeves, finished with a neat band cuff.
Gingham is the best material from which to fashion it, although calico, percale, or seersucker may be used.
The pattern, No. 2882, is cut in sizes for 32, 36, 40 and 44 inch bust measure. To make the apron in the medium size will require 5 1/8 yards of 36-inch material. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
For the Stout Woman
