Black surf-satin or sateen is a favorite material for general-utility aprons, especially when they are to have colorful decoration. An especially pleasing one (No. 2403 N) features applique of fruit of gingham. The stems & tendrils are outlined, using 6 strands of green floss, the edges & pocket-tops are bound with orange gignham, blanket-stitched on the inside edge in groups of three -- a long stitch in the middle & a short one on each side. The shoulder straps button at each side, at the waistline. Perforated stamping-pattern, including cutting lines, 40 cents. Hot-iron transfer-pattern, including cutting-lines, 35 cents. Stamped on black surf-satin, with orange gingham for binding and gingham patches for applique, $1.50. Floss to embroider, 12 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.
