Vintage Brown and White Gingham Apron with Red Cross Stitch Embroidery Butterflies
We were fortunate to acquire a group of hand worked cross stitch embroidered aprons that appear to have never been worn.
They are lovely, classic aprons which were popular for many years making it difficult to date them. They are from the estate of a woman who got married in the early 1940s and did all kinds of handwork and crafts, so it could be from her early marriage years, or something she may have done later in life. We feel they are probably earlier than later, as she was a farm housewife who had three boys, and, honestly? who has time to embroider once that chaos has started?
The aprons are in a variety of sizes, a variety of designs, and a variety of colors.
We are pricing and selling these individually but are happy to combine to reduce shipping; we will discount for a multiple item order, too.
This apron features brown and white gingham with a tuck and pleated waistband and fabulous design of butterflies in red. It almost appears to be black and white with red, but check out the close up images, it is brown and white gingham.
Waistband is 1 and 1/4” wide
Top of apron skirt:18.25”
Across hem of skirt: 34”
Length from top of waistband to hem: 21.25” long
Ties: 3.5” wide x 29” long.
Perfect condition! Freshly laundered ready to wear.
This is for this single brown/white and red butterfly apron: we are including images of some of the other aprons from this acquisition in case you're interested in more than one of them.
