Apron Swap updates

I participated in a couple of apron swap in the past month or so. One was the Flirty Apron Vintage Linen Remix at and my partner was Carolyne.
I looked and looked, went to thrift store after thrift and even a couple of yard sales but never found the perfect linen to use. Anyway, I ended up purchasing some reproduction fabric - the minute I saw it, I knew it would be perfect. The pattern I chose was Butterick 4087 , a vintage 1950's apron. Here is the apron I made:

My daughter usually models for me and I'm not sure where she was - but sorry for the "flat" photos.
Here is the package that I received from Frieda:

And DD modeling the apron:

Notice the socks.
What a beautiful apron - thank you!
