Pretty 1950's Vintage Tie Apron

I have posted in the past about the vintage aprons from my grandmother. Since that posting I have acquired additional aprons from her. Like before, the aprons from the 1950's are homemade. I was so excited when I saw the aprons because I knew they they would be a great addition to my Etsy store.

Since my original posting one of the aprons has sold, so I felt it was time to add another. I am amazed that the aprons are over 50 years old and still in excellent condition. Most of the aprons are perfect, but some have small stains. The fabric in general looks new and has not faded.

This is the most recent apron that I have listed. It has a white background with a blue and green diamond pattern on the pocket, waist tie, and bottom border. The top of the pocket and bottom border is highlighted with a baby blue zig zag ribbon. The fabric is cotton and the stitching has held up beautifully. Whoever made this apron was very good at the art of sewing.

When I started my store, I did not expect to also sell vintage pieces. I am glad that in addition to remade and recycled products that I am also selling vintage pieces. Purchasing a vintage piece, instead of something new is a GREAT way to recycle and remember the past!

Happy recycle-shopping!

I don't wear them either, but I think that they are really cute.
