Antique cotton full body apron 1900 - 1910, Edwardian Era, in mint condition. A true antique.
This is an amazing find. The apron was cut out, party sewn and then tucked away for you to find 100 years later!.
Measurements in inches: Bust 42, waist 48, hip up to 52, length from shoulder to hem 47, flared set in panel at the hem is simply divine. Note: this style was meant to be worn loose.
The fabric is a gorgeous cotton percale. The print is very, very tiny and done in black and white on a black ON white field. Precious print, rarely found.
The original yardage used was 34 inches wide. This can be seen by looking at the inside construction of the front panel. This is a very, early fabric.
It is all sewn together. Only the outside edges are unfinished. The pocket is pinned to the front and is ready to hem and attached. A button or short ties will need to be added at the back waist line.
The neckline is sewn together, making this a "slip over the head", full body apron.
Inside seams were done with a straight, perfectly even stitch. Likely on a treadle Singer sewing machine. The inside seams are overcast stitched, by hand and are so well done, I had to include a picture! A mindful, exacting seamstress made this apron.
All you need to do is turn and stitch edges OR trim with black, gray or white bias tape, sew on the pocket, add a button or ties. You will have an outstanding example of an antique apron in mint condition.
