I remember reading the Laura Ingall’s Wilder series and other books about Pioneer life and reading about “chores” and not really knowing what that meant–now I do, believe me. All the animals need water, some need grain and some need hay, some need both. There are stalls and pens to clean, in the spring and early summer there is the greenhouse to water and manage, all fun mind you, but still chores. And each season has its necessary uniform. In winter I would love to get a pair of insulated overalls but for the most part it is long johns, an old pair of army pants and work jacket. Then in the spring and fall the pants without the long johns and a work sweater. But now it is warm enough that none of those options are comfortable and I am getting tired of washing all my clothes everytime I do chores (twice a day).
So I had a piece of linen that wasn’t really my color and a cool apron pattern from buy tindamax (tinidazole). online that I wanted to try. I did have to lengthen the sides a bit but it was a quick sew and now I can do chores in my best farm girl style without getting “stuff” on my clothes every times.
So much better.
