Child's Antique Blue Homespun Apron with Farmhouse Flavor
This little farmhouse-style blue and white check homespun apron was made like a pinafore to fit over a toddlers girls' dress to keep her clean and dry as she followed her mother around the kitchen, ate her meals, and perhaps accompanied her grandmother to the hen house to collect the mornings' freshly laid eggs! It features long sleeves and a scooped neckline that closes in the back with a hand-made buttonhole and a little white button. It has a pocket and is nicely finished on all edges and sleeves with the same checked material.
We can see that a great deal of care and love was poured into making this little girl's pinafore by a hardworking and skilled seamstress. What a lucky child to have such a sweet little garment made just for her!
There is a small tear opposite the pocket about 1/4" long (see last photo). It has been freshly hand-washed and ironed and there are no stains or odors present. Very good condition overall.
Dress measures about 17 1/2" long from shoulder to hem. Each sleeve is about 11" long. Bottom width -- 12 1/2".
