And Jessica that means you.
I have been looking for patterns for an apron, ya I said it. APRON! I am tired of my clothes getting dirty when I cook cause I am a very in the moment cook and don’t really care about how messy things get. I happend on this little excerpt from a Singer sewing manual circa 1949:
“Prepare yourself mentally for sewing. Think about what you are going to do…never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically. Good results are difficult when indifference predominates. Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade. When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do these first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing.
…When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible. Put on a clean dress. Keep a little bag full of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers at intervals. Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick put on…(If) you are constantly fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will come home and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy your sewing as you should…
Are YOU KIDDING ME?! What agency won that account?
Anyway still no pattern. But, I am going to make a GREAT apron.
