Vintage Apron circa Early 1940's
Its History: This apron was hand made by our matriarch, Helen, previous to her marriage in 1943. The eyelet insets were a fanciful detail. Sheryl and her sisters played with this apron. Amazing that its still in such great shape. Gotta' hand it to Helen, it was created with durability. Wal-Mart could use a lesson or two, eh?
Features of the Era: The main features of the era shown in this apron include the following...
- Using what was available such as recycled lace
- Majority of stiching done by hand
|During our photo-shoot I realized that my Grandma had signed the cookbook we got out of our mothers cupboard. "Helen 1944"|
