Day 5 of an apron a day....

This apron is somewhat sheer, but I like it much more than the last one. This apron has no pockets and it ties around the waist. More of a hostess/Sunday-best apron than a cooking apron. But this is a child's apron best Sunday dress apron.

My youngest daughter would probably like this one, too, because she is the butterfly girl in our house. There are snaps on the sides probably to attach it to a dress when great grandma was a little girl. Later in this group of aprons is a another child's apron it also has embroidery.

This is a unique apron in that it is the type you pin to your bodice to hold the top in place. There is some shadow work (the black and white embroidery) on the wings of the two butterflies. Very delicate and sweet because of all the embroidery.

It also has lovely antique cotton machine-made bobbin lace trim.

We are trying to date these; so far I think this one is 1900- 1920 because of the style of apron. Probably the teens.


  1. Beautiful handwork on this apron - I love it. It is so feminine and delicate.

  2. Beautiful work! I really like the butterfly apron. Such a clever design, and so dainty.

  3. Now this butterfly apron is absolutely beautiful..great inspiration piece.

  4. I like all the aprons but the butterfly is my favorite.
