Yes, they are endless. But at least you only have to read about them. I, on the hand…
The aprons featured in this post are both sheer. The first is one of my favorites, of blue dotted Swiss. I have a thing for dotted Swiss. The red rick rack doesn’t hurt either. And check out the shaped waistband and scalloped hem. I’m taking a guess that this one is from the 1950s.
The next one is badly faded, but there are faint remnants of stenciled flowers on the pocket and along the hem.
It’s got me stumped as far as age though. Could be as early as the 1940s based on the delicate fabric and fine sewing. What do you think?
