Today I made a very profitable trip to the thrift store. I picked up a total of 13 patterns at $.29 each. Including these older patterns from the 60's - 80's and a scrubs pattern. My final discovery was these "Embracable Apron Clips". Apparently you just make you apron with a sleeve in it, then slick on of these through and voila! it just clips around your waist. No need to make a waist tie, "A must for every woman's wardrobe" and "Saves time and energy!". So I just might have to whip up an apron or two sometime soon.
