A keepsake school girl sewing sample of a white batiste apron. A skill in sewing is displayed in this miniature apron made by Malvina, age 12, School 24. Although no other information, on either the note attached with the apron, or the envelope the apron was tucked in, it dates early 1900's.
The white cotton batiste apron is completely hand stitched, including the narrow tucks, drawn thread and attached whitework ruffle. Short tie tabs, with a hand worked button hole on one end, but no button on the other tab.
The small document of history measues 5-7/8" long center front from the waist band to the hem. 8-1/4" along the waist band from the point of one tab to the other. Width of the whitework ruffle is 1" wide.
If you like to collect school girl sewing samples and items, this would be a charming addition.
