The government of a family bears a Lilliputian resemblance to the government of a nation. The Virginia Housewife , 1824
Americana in the 20th-century kitchen looked like this! During the 1940s-1960s red, white, and blue aprons held special charm to home cooks. As symbols of creative cooking and optimism rooted in the WWII rations years, these colorful aprons evolved into fashionable details for holiday attire when it came to celebrating American holidays like the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Armed Forces Day.
With its cheerful polka dot details, ric rac trim, and clever bib-style pocket, this apron was party-approved for any home cook ready to showcase her patriotic best. Whether she was cooking for a crowd or just a few, an apron like this with its sturdy cotton cloth was both useful in the kitchen curbing cooking splatters at the stove as well as stylish enough to be at the party serving drinks and appetizers.
