Vintage Smock Apron with Orange Flowers and Navy Blue Trim circa 1950s-1970s
The kitchen, without doubt, was the center of creation, all things revolved about it; it was the pediment that sustained the temple. Ray Bradbury
Bright, colorful, and full of vibrant patterns, this vintage smock-style apron is so pretty it could practically be a blouse. Fashioned in the cooper style that was popular in the 1950s-1970s, this type of apron was a favorite among cooks, gardeners, and crafters.
Featuring full coverage on the top, sides, and back it was an ideal apron to wear for messier cooking projects like canning, baking, and sauce-making as well as an ideal cover for cleaning, painting, gardening or shop work.
Beautifully hand-sewn, this apron features navy blue trim at the neckline and sleeves, two deep pockets large enough to hold a cell phone, recipe cards, cooking utensils, etc, and extra long fabric ties that can be tied in front or back depending on your preference. A velcro clasp at the nape of the neck in back secures the whole arrangement.
If you are of the crafty sort you could easily add a series of buttons down the back and turn this apron into a blouse. or simply wear it as an apron and you'll be the most stylish cook on the block.
