Do you remember cooking and baking with your mother? She teaching you the art of baking those special cookies perhaps? Following the recipe and measuring the ingredients correctly? Rolling of the dough, if cut out cookies were to be made. Each shape placed carefully on the cookie sheet for baking. Of course, the best part was the decorating of the cookies after they were baked. Oh, what fun!
For those special baking days, sometimes special aprons were worn, such as this lovely mother and daughter matching aprons. What little girl wouldn't like to be dressed just like her mother. And what mother wouldn't have liked her daughter to feel very special. I am sure the mother and daughter that wore these aprons held a very dear bond.
The aprons are home sewn and hand embroidered, dating from the 1930's. Different stamped and tinted fabric pattern could be purchased through companies, such as Vogart. The homemaker would then embroidery, cut and sew the pieces together. In this case, the two aprons. The motif of these aprons are a Southern Belle with brimmed hat under a garden trellis. These particular motif was quite popular during the time period.
Aprons then were so part of daily life, from ones worn for doing household chores to fancy ones for serving teas or Sunday dinners.
