Vintage Crocheted Apron



My friend Debbie and her husband are terrific garage salers… We were going through a box of crocheted items that she bought for a couple of dollars and came up with this beauty. I had never personally seen a crocheted apron since all the ones done in our family had been working, every day aprons made from good sturdy fabric. What a treat it was to find this! She graciously gave it to me…The waistband is filet crochet with the ends of the ties having little pink shells on the ends. The body is made up of simple shell stitches divided into rows by using the v-stitch into the top of each shell. The 3 vertical stripes are double crochet increases into the top of the shells previously made. Very simple pattern for such a pretty apron! I am surprised that anyone would sell it!
