Pinafore Aprons ~ Part 3

Here's Part 3 of my re-post originally from January 2011 

1964 Pinafore Aprons
850--65--Womans-Day-Sept-1964--Page-50--Pinafore-Aprons-b1-
Jester’s Tunic
Luxuriantly flowered panels of woven cotton offer protection from splatters at front and back. Bias tape is used for ties, and to bind the sailcloth borders.
Flower Garland
Flower shapes are sketched on cotton broadcloth, machine satin stitched and cut out. Apron is batiste with cording to accent the gathered skirt.
Circus Stripes
The fanciful dickey and teardrop designs are machine appliqued and outlined with narrow bias tape. Fabric is all cotton with ties at neck and waist.
I made something similar to the Jester’s Tunic in my Home Economics class in the early 70’s. And of course, I made several of the smocks made from the acrylic fabrics at that time. How many of you made the smocks? I had some really wild ones.

It’s art if it can’t be explained.
It’s fashion if no one asks for an explanation.
It’s design if it doesn’t need explanation.

Hi Stephanie - Your photos are fabulous! And the view from your porch is "to die for", as my friend Rose often says. Lucky girl, you are! Thanks for sharing your images at Mosaic Monday and thanks for visiting Cottage and Creek. I so appreciate it! Have a wonderful day.

And, these aprons... I'm so happy they're "in" again... They're so happy, aren't they?

Warmest blessings,
