This very pretty chiffon hostess apron from the 60s is a lovely light purple color, some would call it spring lilac.
It features a ruffle edged pocket that has embroidered orchids, while the skirt of the apron has ruffles all the way around it.
18.5” from side to side at the top of the skirt
21” long ties/tails
2” wide waistband
length from the bottom of the waistband to the top of the ruffled hem: 15”
the ruffle is 3/4” wide
the skirt flares to a 56” sweep of hem
This is in excellent condition; it has been freshly hand laundered, and is ready to wear or gift.
This would be perfect to wear (or gift) for Easter, Mother's Day. For bridal shower gifts, we like to create baskets filled with vintage goodies, including aprons, cookbooks, special pans or utensils, and/or with our favorite recipe hand-written on a pretty vintage card with all the ingredients to make them, like Mom's Secret Orange Cookies, or Grandma's Triple Chocolate Brownies!
This is for the apron only; the crinoline underneath it is not included.
