This is a little gem of a vintage apron. It's a true pinafore, because it has a bib top with no straps. It was meant to be pinned to the blouse or bodice of a dress. The bottom is a half circle of jade green satin with a ruffle and ties of chintz with a paisley and roses pattern. There's a pocket and both that and the bib are embellished with hand some feather stitching in pink, with lace braid trim and a pink ribbon bow. Just darling. I think it's from the 1930's but could be older. Measures 22" long, 16" across at waist with two 16 1/2" ties.
