A few weekends ago, the hubby and I checked out a few antique shops. We made a stop at The Old House Revival Company, which is a multiple vendor shop that has old house fixtures, furniture, knickknacks and clothing for sale. I saw many things I wanted…many of which I could afford, but I couldn’t justify them. Except for one thing. An apron that was beautifully trimmed and starched to near cardboard crispness. That I couldn’t resist!
I will find a way to make this useful. Perhaps, dear Victorian at Heart girls, I will host a costumed tea this winter. You will come to my non-Victorian home and pretend you are my Victorian girlfriends come to tea and a hand sewing/knit session. May be we will get really authentic and watch a Victorian themed movie!
Are there any apron experts that can tell me what the best time period would be for this apron and if there is anything I should do to make is more Victorian. Did they have the neck strap or was the bib just pinned on?
