Where did this one come from you might ask?
This was my Grandma G's apron and I remember her wearing it on the farm on several occasions. Kleenex was always tucked away in the pocket. She would wear it all day. I am confident all the work was done with her hands. I have tried it on several times and it feels a bit snug in places. It would figure as my grandmother was a bit smaller framed than I am. This apron is a smock style, I believe and I think it would be pretty comfortable. Maybe if I had a better fitting one I would like this style as well? I don't know. Maybe I will try cooking with it. However, I think it may need a wash and an iron.
It may be worth it.
It's a fun reminder of my grandmother and childhood memories on the farm. My grandmother died a couple of years ago at 100 1/2 -- you have to start adding the "half" in again when you turn 100 -- ha ha ha!!
