Remember those gorgeous aprons your mother and grandmother would wear? They had hand-finished details like crocheted edges, fun embroidered designs, or a kicky ruffle along the hem. They were feminine, useful, and often were in very pretty colors. Even the plain ones were quite beautiful. Here are some of those aprons of the past, the kind that we remember growing up.
Whether it’s the pattern envelope or a snapshot from Thanksgiving, images of vintage aprons always bring back so many memories of being a kid. The busy family gatherings, the daily chores, and Mom wringing her hands on her apron to answer the door or the phone. Those were the days.
