Vintage Apron - Mid 50's





Vintage Apron circa 1950's


Its History: This apron original purpose was for show when my Grandmother entertained. Grandma Strong often entertained groups such as her womens Bible study. Because this was for show my mom, sister, and I do not recall ever seeing Grandma Strong wear this. Regardless, we can totally picture it! How feminine and 50's! Can't you just picture this in "The Help?"

Features of the Era: There are SO many things about this apron that are screaming 50's. Here are a few...
  • A base of white organiza
  • Color palett of muted turquoise and butter yellow
  • Black rick-rack trim
  • Simple lines
  • Medium sized print including butterflies
