Object Description
Long light pink handmade apron. Bottom trimmed in blue and brown circle design. Possibly part of costume. Along the bottom, the cloth has a light pink line, followed by a sewn blue oval design, which is followed by another light pink line, which is in turn followed by a row of dark brown circles. After a pink line, the brown circles are followed by tan circles, then brown circles again. After this, there is the light blue oval pattern. The strap of the apron hs the same design on it between the snaps.
Origin
This apron is considered a half apron, since it only extends from the waist down. Aprons were popular before the 1960s in order to protect clothing. However, after the 1960s, aprons were used less often because of cheap clothes and the use of washing machines. Aprons like this one were often worn for doing chores inside the home.
