Edwardian Apron

From the seller:

Fantastic antique primitive pinafore/apron. Measures 42" long. Waist is 38", which includes the ties. Has age stains. Pocket on the right hip with coordinating material. Pretty cotton material in dark brown and cream. Handmade. This is a great primitive prairie piece of clothing.

From Me:

1904 Ad for Aprons

There are a few details that need to be pointed out. In one of the photos, you can see the front lower half of the apron is gathered - but only in the front. This is consistent with the Edwardian era. The two fabrics used both appear to be cotton prints. I love the pocket - very useful! As in the ad, the apron would have been fitted around the wearer and not just the front. Anyone that has tried to clean something very dusty will know why.
