Finds: Vintage Aprons

I’ve said it before, but I just have to say it again, I love yard sales!!!  I haven’t had a chance to go to any this season, but my Mom has been going every weekend and she got me the cutest vintage aprons last week.apron 2The first one is a light weight, almost sheer, half apron with a scallop hem.apron 3 Apron number two has an interesting use of rick rack, it’s hard to see, but squares of the patterned fabric have been outlined with rick rack and applied to the plain waist band and pocket.apron 1

This one is my favorite, I love the shape of the waist and the zig-zags on the bottom and pocket are really unique.  I also like the dark patterned fabric with the bright yellow.

I was very impressed with my Mother’s bargaining skills, she paid $.50 for all three.  I am excited to add these to my collection and I might have to make a copy of the black and yellow one, if I can figure out how they make those zig-zags!

Keep an eye out for plant pots! Well I have some here, so if you're fine with whatever I pick, then coo, but if you want a certain style or color, I will probably start dirt-ing them next week.
