Can you remember the wraparound aprons, just like ‘mom’ used to wear? They would always have a pocket at the front for an hanky and a dolly peg or two. Some moms would wear these all day to do their household chores and then just before hubby came home from work they would take them off to reveal their clean clothes underneath. This is just some of the stories we hear when people see our vintage wrapover aprons, perhaps you have some stories of your own?
