Vintage Thingies Thursday: Delicate Aprons

Is it a crime to forget that you own vintage aprons?? Well, I did. I've had these sheer aprons for about 10 years. I don't really remember when or where I bought them, except that it was an antique store. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted an apron collection. (I wanted to start with my mother's apron.) I guess that I picked these up in hopes that my dream would start to become a reality.
A white background doesn't do this apron justice, but that's the color of my laundry room. Picture, if you will, a light blue background.... ahhh, much better. These aprons have little wear, and the lace is very soft.

A close up of this pocket makes it seem quite bridal. I have no idea what era they're from, but they're definitely part of my budding collection.

Oh, I love these aprons. They are so feminine. That's sure a cute little hat you crocheted. I love the color and I'll bet you'll enjoy wearing it.

OMG, I can't imagine cooking in them, they're so delicate. I have my great grandmas and there is one almost identical to the top pink one.

So pretty! I wonder how they use to be kept clean?

Carolyn said...

These are too lovely to cook in! I love them. What neat things to have~~I'd use them for dress-up!

They're beautiful! I agree with Carolyn...they're much too lovely to cook it! My girls would adore these.

These are fantastic. My daughter would flip if she saw them. She loves the sheer ones like you have.

I remember my mom having two of these. They were very special aprons that were only worn to serve at weddings or parties.. never to actually cook in.

So pretty! I like the pink one a lot.

The sheer aprons are so beautiful! I only have two both of which were gifts. I have yet to thrift one. :) I have a small apron collection myself!

Missa said...

These are gorgeous Diane!

I have a couple of vintage aprons that I always forget about too, one kinda reminds me of these. Would it be weird to just wear them out like as part of an outfit? Hmm, probably.

Nice job on the hat, it's super duper cute!

I love pretty, sheer aprons like those, but I've always passed them up in thrift stores since I collect the more kitcheny type aprons.

grace said...

Those are absolutely gorgeous, but I can't imagine actually wearing them to cook or clean! They're like apron lingerie!

Patty said...

They really are so pretty. I can't imagine wearing one and getting something on it. (And, I forget what I have all the time. You are not alone.)

Kellie said...

Yes, yes is IS a crime to forget you have a vintage apron collection! ;)

The white one is to die for.
