Sheer & floral hostess apron
Ah, the whimsy of the mid-century hostess apron -- embellished and decorative -- tied on just before the dinner guests arrived as a kind of flag of elegant, cheerful housewifery. Robin-blue, red and white, this version combines a bright chintz print with sheer cotton organdy, and contrasts diagonals of fabric with heavily-drawn red lines. Hang it in the window, tie on a second apron and wear it as a skirt, use in the traditional fashion and etc… your call.

Delightfully wearable shape, with no obtrusive flaws. Any small faults do not retract from wearability and will be fully-disclosed. Noted minor issues to organza: one pinhole. four pale spots above the pocket (see pics)
