Cream colored, hand-stitched apron. The main shape of the apron is a simple rectangular shape with details added throughout the stitching. The top 13 or so inches of the main portion of the apron is a plain, square patterned stitching. Near the bottom of the apron skirt, there is a more dense stitching pattern to form a sort of looped design. At the borrom of the looped design, there is more dense stitching to form a seam at the bottom, separating the looped design from the 2 inches of ruffles at the bottom.
At each end of the top of the apron, there is sewn a string that measures around 13.5 inches in length, that would be used in order to fasten the apron around the waist.
