Its been years

since I've really sewn anything and I used to make all my own clothes. Recently I got a wild notion to make an apron for my husband's eldest daughter and also one for my niece (who lives in the UK). Both are Plus-sized women and have problems finding clothes and other items. I found a perfect pattern at "Pailey Pincushion" and have made them from flat bedsheets (for a full-sized bed)

clothes. Does anyone know, How did this OP post with an attachment ?
usenet is suppose to be text only (unless it is a binaries group), typically attachments are truncated. It is supposed to be bad usenet-iqutte to try to post with HTML or any web media other than text.
I am guessing it has to do with the access path of webtv.net or giganews.
I tried to add an attachment to this reply post as a test to see if the rules have been relaxed ?? but the server never posted the message so my whole message was dunped because it had an attachment.
grumble, robb

I love aprons, they're much easier to 'wash & wear' than messing up the clothes I'm wearing, especially when cooking, clearing the table & washing dishes. Emily

Robb, the presser foot picture was at the end of your post, I saw it. Yes, usenet is not supposed to post pictures. Somehow, hers & yours got through. I only hope it doesn't continue. Emily

Thanks Emily,
My attachment message test has yet to appear in my news reader so i have no idea what happened for me.
FWIW i will not continue and i prefer that attachments not function for groups like alt.sewing.

Don't fret too much. This is usenet, there aren't any rules, but there are conventions associated with particular groups.
This is a text only group. You've recognised that. No problem.
Merry Christmas!

I didn't see any attachment on either message -- I don't think I saw the original post at all. I presume that Motzarella filtered them out.

I wear an apron when i cook or wash dishes , or wash the floor !!! In former years i made aprons from old skirts , now i was lucky and somebody gave me some `course material` aprons. I have a pattern of a Bag +apron with handcrafts. In shops here you can buy aprons that have cloth on one side and Plastic on the other side. Wearing an apron saves clothes !!!! mirjam

I, too, wear aprons all the time. It is automatic. Go into kitchen, tie on apron, start work. It saves on laundry, saves good clothes, and when I am finished I just take off my apron and I am dressed again - no need to notice nasty stain, go upstairs, change clothes etc., etc.

the apron! I use them most of the time when I cook. There has been a resurgance of the "domestic goddess" apron of the 50's and I have sewn several that TSWLTH had as cut outs (buy a panel, cut out the pre-printed pieces and sew). What fabric did you use? And I understand you not using aprons in Hawaii, Alicia. Who needs extra clothes on in the heat? Kirsten
