Vintage mid- to late 1950s cotton pinafore apron with “Ever-Pleat” skirt is unworn deadstock with the original tags attached. The rich print features an “airbrush” ground in turquoise green, lavender, and white, stencilled with gold metallic paisleys and foliate designs. Gold rick-rack trim on the bib and single front pocket seems to reflect the luster of the stencilled designs.

The paper hang tag reads “Ever-Pleat Durably Pleated Fabric by Bonafab” and touts its benefits on front, while providing detailed care instructions on the reverse (photo #8).

Introduced in 1954 by Bonafab, a division of M. Lowenstein & Sons, Inc., “Ever-Pleat” washable knife-pleated fabric was widely promoted as ideal for easy-to-make, easy-to-care for skirts, and soon after, for aprons that required neither ironing nor starch (“Just drip dry and wear!” instructs one ad from 1955). The laundering instructions detailed on the hang tag were often proudly included in period ads.

Measurements are: Waist to hem 19.5”, top edge of bib to hem 40”, waistband 17” (with each of the ties another 20”), and hem sweep 64”.

Excellent, unworn condition.

NOTE: Please see my other listings for the identical apron in a red colorway.
