Originally published in 1921, this apron and bonnet book contains instructions, illustrations and patterns to make 12 aprons, 2 sunbonnets, 1 sun hat and a clothes pin bag. This book is one in a series of educational books published by the Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts & Sciences and was created for the beginner, so instructions are clear and detailed. You'll learn how to prepare the pattern, cut out the material and construct each item as well as add pockets, attach strings, bands, ruffles and other trimmings. Pretty and useful, these designs include a circular ruffle apron, pointed panel apron, valentine apron, mother's apron, economy apron, maid's apron, square sewing apron, round sewing apron, bow-knot apron, sewing bag apron, circular sewing apron, clothes pin apron, dress-up sunbonnet, sun hat and standard sunbonnet. This book provides rare, authentic styles and patterns that can still be worn with pride today. Sample content and illustration images are shown at the top of this page.

Complete sunbonnet patterns! As a teenager, I used to see the classic sunbonnet worn by some of the older Ozark women as they gardened. Useful anywhere that the sun is an enemy (like Phoenix!), the classic sunbonnet will completely shade your face and neck.
