Vintage apron

I finished this vintage apron for my friend.
It's a SEMCO design crinoline lady sitting in a garden.
Her mother had hand worked the embroidery sometime in the 1950's.
I lined it, added some faux front pockets with ric rac embellishment,
then
washed, starched
and
ironed it
to
complete.
I made this apron a few years ago now
but
as I am still not able to sew
due to back pain
I thought I would share
some of my older projects.
This glamorous apron model (aka DD) is wearing her winter flanelette pj's.
This photo shows the lining....a dainty and small blue cotton print.
I used this same fabric for the waist and neck ties.
