Depression Era Aprons

There has been an apron that I have been seeing occasionally and I have always really liked the look.  It's on trend with overall fashion as well, a simple, clean line and airy garment.  Many people are calling it a Japanese Apron or Japanese Inspired.  Actually this popular style is a classic pinafore dating back to the depression era.

The above Pickford Apron, named for Mary Pickford, Hollywood actress of the time who looked completely picturesque while wearing an apron.  Or as my mother called this, a housecoat.  The purpose was to cover up your lovely attire while doing the dirty house work.

I recently began working with a new business which I am so excited about.  They would like to try a depression era housecoat, cross apron coverall.  I love doing research and love experimenting!

Happy Tuesday's Apron!
