I rely on a wonderful book to help guide me to 'dating vintage fabric'.... and tho' I had these 2 aprons narrowed down to between the 1930's to the 1960's... I think this one is
from the 1930's-40's as these particular colors were very popular then. Mint Green & Bubblegum pink... This is the 2nd apron that I have that incorporate black, mint & pink on a white or beige background.
This apron is a bit more difficult for me to narrow down,,, in greys & blues.... and I also have a 2nd apron similar in this color palette. But for now I have it narrowed to between 1930-60's.
Both aprons are homemade and sweet as can be. As always, I hand wash my aprons, hang dry and then I iron them using my homemade lavender water spray. These two are on display in my sewing room for now. I love rotating my aprons in my kitchen and in my sewing room. It's amazing how women managed to make sweet little aprons from cast off, re purposed fabric, even feed/grain sacks. Cotton fabric back then was 36" wide so placing one's pattern on fabric with minimal waste was very important.
