Day 9 of an apron a day....

wash apron
There are a few aprons in the collection similar in fabric as this one. It feels like it is made out of thin shower curtains. This would make a very good apron for washing dishes because it is plastic and would repel the water instead of letting it soak in in time. I don't know if I want to make one out of this type of fabric, but I think it was very smart in a time and era when people washed all dishes by hand. Great grandma never had a dishwasher, she always washed by hand. That was always the kids' chore to do when we would go visit (the kids being my generation, not my kids). This is made from three pieces of plastic and was store bought.

I think it is from the 1950- 1960's; probably more a 1960's apron, but not really sure because I have never seen plastic aprons other than the ones in this set.

  1. You have to admit this is a practical apron but the wrinkled look would drive me crazy. I would probably ruin my iron trying to smooth it out! What a fantastic apron collection.
