As a rule, we can scarcely think of anything more prosaic than a kitchen-apron, can we? But just look at the attractive coverall pictured (No. 2402 N) and see who easy it is to make dish-washing and dusting a joy! The apron is of blue & white checked gingham, the edges bound with plain yellow gingham; and yellow tulips, with leaves of green, are cross-stitched over the checks, one on the bib & three across the bottom of the apron. The size of the flowers depending on the size of the check. The patch pockets of checked gingham are bound with yellow. Hot-iron transfer-pattern of cutting-lines only, 30 cents. Blue & white checked gingham, with yellow gingham for binding. $1.00. Floss to embroider, 24 cents.

Pattern was 12 cents. A catalog showing all available styles was only 10 cents when accompanied with a pattern order or 12 cents without pattern order.

This illustration is from a 1924 issue of NEEDLECRAFT MAGAZINE, Augusta, Maine. This 13"t x 10.5"w magazine includes directions for crochet, knitting & craft designs. Also offers tons of embroidery patterns for sale.
