This is my second page for my Family in Fabric book. This page shown my Grandma. She always wore button front dresses. I'm showing two photos of her with a button front dress. They aren't exactly like the pattern but very similar. She also always had a belt as does this pattern. The vintage Butterick pattern is from the 1940's and so are these pictures of Grandma. The other pattern envelope is one for a pattern she ordered from the newspaper. The address is in her handwriting. My aunt gave me this envelope when I told her I was making the fabric book.
The fabric is from a vintage brown and white polka dot apron. If you look closely in the bottom left you can see the edge of the pocket with lace edging. The laces and vintage buttons are from my stash. I have a box of vintage jewelry and a page dedicated to my Grandma wouldn't be complete unless it had a necklace. You can see her wearing one in the photo with my grandpa.
I will bind the edges of the page but haven't yet figured out how I will bind them together. For now I'm just turning under the edge where the book binding will be. You can see my first page here.
