More pics from the vintage apron booklet

Again, this is Aprons and Bibs: over 30 sewn and crocheted ideas. Published in 1945 by the American Thread Company. Original price, 10 cents. (note to Mary: no credit is given to the illustrator).

 We are so lucky today that we don't HAVE to use a clothesline or HAVE to cook. Lots of work.

 Housework as a toy kills me. Like how the Amish have toy plows, etc Posted by Picasa

 Wow, slacks as an anomaly. When I was a kid, girls weren't allowed to wear pants to school. I don't think the rule changed until I hit junior high. Posted by Picasa

Would you really wear an apron over your elegant dress? Ha! We'd probably all just have it catered! Posted by Picasa

I can't see that last one keeping MY long dress clean while I'm cooking - I could put all the wine bottles the guests bring with them in the pockets though!

These images are so fabulous! I love the little girls! Thanks for sharing! I will have to look and compare these illo's closely to the ones in the baby book. They really seem similar.
