I have an apron or two, but I rarely wear them. My Mother wore an apron on Sundays when she was cooking. Far Guy’s Mom always had an apron in the kitchen hung over the step stool/chair that sat next to the stove, it was ready at a moments notice…they were mostly gingham aprons…red or turquoise. My grandmother wore aprons that covered her whole dress…they were some busy flowery material, with huge pockets, the apron slipped over her head and tied in the back.
Do you wear aprons?
Aprons were worn more “back in the day” an apron kept your dress clean, the pockets held a hankie...or tiny treasures. Aprons were easier to wash than dresses.
I have an old photo of Great Aunt Frances in 1920. It was Apron Day at school.
