Vintage Aprons: Look Cute & Classy While Cooking & Cleaning!

Updated on July 30, 2017

Fun and Flirty Old-Fashioned Aprons

Vintage aprons are cute and fun as well as functional items to use and display in the kitchen. Featured here are dozens of gorgeous, vintage and new aprons that you can buy or just look at and drool over. You will also find books and sewing patterns for making your own aprons, links to websites that sell vintage fabrics, books on collecting aprons, gifts and books for children and other nostalgic goodies!

You might find kitchen aprons anywhere from the stylish 1930s to the funky 1970s on this popular lens (my apron selection varies day to day). There are several styles of old aprons here including country and shabby chic aprons made from a variety of materials such as organdy, organza, oilcloth, flour sacks, cotton and silk. I also included a section that features plus-size aprons and vintage aprons for men, and sewing patterns for men's and women's aprons.

Aprons are not just utilitarian anymore, but they are very stylish and collectible. Many aprons were handmade a long time ago from feed sacks, tattered dresses or old fabric scraps. I hope you enjoy this lens, and I would love to hear from you, so if you have a moment, please sign my guest book.

Vintage Organza Aprons on eBay - Dress Up Any Old Outfit with an Organza Apron

For those of you who might not know, organza is a light-weight, sheer fabric with a bit of a shimmer to it and is very pretty and feminine! Aprons made of organza are not meant to be workhorses, but are more for making you look and feel pretty and fashionable! Vintage organza aprons are very collectible. I never wear mine, I just like to display them on a peg board wall in my kitchen.

Why I Like Old Aprons

Old kitchen aprons are special to me for several reasons! I love the pretty colors and lively prints on the fabrics from which many

vintage aprons are made, and the warm, cozy vision I have in my mind of a gray-haired grandmother (yes, I know, not all grandmothers have gray hair) sewing the perfect apron from scraps of fabric held together with stitches that might have been sewn on an old treadle sewing machine or by gentle hands.

I think the main reason I am drawn to these adorable vintage aprons is because of the memories dancing in my mind of my own grandmother wearing her homemade aprons while she cooked delicious, southern-style meals while I stood tip-toed snooping through her kitchen drawers digging through the piles of aprons she had made. The wonderful aroma from those tasty casseroles and scrumptious deserts filling the air made my tummy growl and made me impatient for supper to be served. I remember my grandmother laughing at me as I twirled around in the kitchen wearing one of her aprons that hung almost to my ankles.

I loved my grandmother dearly, and I still giggle every time I think of her wearing a frilly kitchen apron, bouffant wig and horn-rimmed glasses!

Vintage Organdy Aprons on eBay - Flirty Aprons in Lightweight, Whispery Fabric

Organdy aprons are made from a sheer, feminine fabric, and they look beautiful hanging around in an old farmhouse kitchen or Victorian kitchen. Heck, these little cuties look great anywhere and can turn a drab home into a very romantic one.


Glamorous, Red Apron with Sequins - Putting on this apron will surely make you forget why you put it on.

"Glamour Girl" - Red Sequin Apron by Domestic Glitz
"Glamour Girl" - Red Sequin Apron by Domestic Glitz

What girl doesn't need to wear sequins while cooking? This is one of the most unique aprons I've seen, and I've seen lots of aprons! I’m not sure if I would want to cook while wearing this beauty, but I might wear it while eating an elegant dinner I pretended to cook!

 

Care Instructions

Hand washing your vintage aprons and linens preserves the colors and extends the life of delicate fabrics.

Vintage Flirty Aprons Sold in Lots - Cute Bridal Shower or Party Favor Idea!

Shown here are both vintage (old / used) and new, but vintage-inspired, aprons sold in lots. Aprons are classic gifts for the bride to be, and they are fun to wear at wedding showers. Give each guest at the bridal shower an apron to take home and bundle up a few special aprons for the bride. Imagine how FUN it will be to dig through a box full of aprons when the package arrives...


My Thoughts on Vintage Floursack Aprons

What We Call "Upcycling" Was Once a Necessity

I absolutely adore old, tattered floursack aprons! I have a few aprons that my grandmother made out of her flour sacks and feed sacks many years ago. Poor people and thrifty people made clothing, pillows, aprons, quilts and no telling what else out of the cloth sacks their flour and feed came in.

Books on Collecting Vintage Aprons

These books are for the true Vintage Apron Junkie....like me! Some of these books would look nice on a coffee table for that homey vintage feel in a living room...or on a porch...or in a kitchen...or anywhere.


The Apron Book: Making, Wearing, and Sharing a Bit of Cloth and Comfort
The Apron Book: Making, Wearing, and Sharing a Bit of Cloth and Comfort

First Sentence:

HOW DID aprons go from being an indispensable part of a woman's workaday wardrobe to an American icon to a sweet scrap of collectible nostalgia to one of the hottest sew-crafting trends going?

(Hardcover)

 
Aprons of the Mid-20th Century: To Serve and Protect (A Schiffer Book for Designers and Collectors)
Aprons of the Mid-20th Century: To Serve and Protect (A Schiffer Book for Designers and Collectors)

Book Description:

Frilly, lacy, sweet, and sexy--aprons defined a generation of happy housewives and hostesses. Today these filmy, finely home-crafted garments are sentimental favorites, evoking memories of Mom, Grandmom, or some other Doris Day-like image of domesticity, and they are highly sought-after by designers and collectors of household linens. Over 200 aprons are featured in this beautiful book, accompanied by detail shots that highlight design elements, stitching, and embellishments. Separate sections are devoted to gingham, floral designs, rickrack, handkerchief aprons, plaids and stripes, and polka dots. Aprons with embroidery, crochet, tatting, lace, and cross-stitching are examined in detail, and a collection of vintage apron patterns is included.

Includes a collector's price guide. (Paperback)

First Sentence::

Which apron do you remember-the flowery one with the big pockets where Grandma kept the peppermints.

Books on Sewing Vintage-Syle Aprons - Aprons are really fun and easy to make....and fun to wear!

The last two books featured in this module are not exclusively for aprons, but they do have instructions for making aprons along with other "functional" patterns such as wall organizers, pillows and tote bags. The last one is a good book for the beginner sewer since it includes simple and inspiring patterns.

Thinking of Making Your Own Vintage-Style Apron?

Upcycling used items into aprons is lots of fun!

You don't have to buy expensive fabric to make your own aprons -- try using a vintage floral sheet, an old dress or skirt. Use your creative juices and come up with something really original!

Items to make an apron out of:

fabric scraps

bedsheet

pillowcases

curtains/drapes

old dress or skirt

pants or bluejeans

comforter, quilt or bedspread

towels

shower curtain (the vinyl ones would make perfect aprons to wear while washing the car or dog or while gardening!)

make a holiday apron out of a Christmas tree skirt

Are you ready for this one? crepe paper (I saw a vintage crepe paper apron on eBay that was really cute. It was orange with a black halloween cat.)

Fun Retro Shopping Links

(Each of the banners and links below will take you to a different website, but this page will remain open.)


Retro Loco! is an online store that sells (new) retro kitchen wares, vintage-inspired aprons, dozens of retro cookbooks, music from the 1920s through the 1980s, retro clothing and costumes for men and women, funky clocks and other groovy retro stuff. I hope you will visit Retro Loco! and bookmark it so you can visit it again to see all the neat things I have added.


A Fun Idea for Wearing Aprons

Halloween is a great time to tie on a short frilly apron! Instead of buying a costume this year, you could dress up as a "Retro Housewife". Wear a vintage-style dress, put on some stilettos, a short half apron and fishnet stockings. Carry around your trick-or-treat bag in one hand and a pink feather duster in the other and off you go! Use your imagination and have fun!

Lolita and Sexy Aprons on eBay - These flirty aprons are great bridal shower and housewarming gifts!

P laying around with different search terms on eBay is always fun! I typed, "sexy apron" when I did this search, (without the quotes) and I found all kinds of items including lingerie that is probably not appropriate to display on this lens! I also found Halloween costumes, and some beautiful aprons that would make wonderful gifts for a bride-to-be. Try your hand at different search terms, and you will find hundreds of sexy vintage and retro aprons.

Feather Dusters and Other Cleaning Tools for Work or Play - Flirty aprons and feather dusters, they just seem to go together!

Like it or not, the image of a woman wearing a feminine apron while doing the dusting has become both a European and American icon. Shown here are some feather dusters that are meant to be part of a costume, and some of these are heavy duty industrial type dusters that will help get your house sparkling clean. Don't forget to wear that sexy vintage apron while doing your chores!

Pink Feather Duster
Pink Feather Duster

Feather dusters are great for cleaning, and they also make a fun prop for a costume. This hot pink duster will look cute hanging around in your kitchen or laundry room.

 

Studio Floor 13 is my oddball little art store where I sell weird and retro digital art, humorous designs and holiday art on T-shirts, bumper stickers, BBQ/Kitchen aprons, mugs, coasters, cards, porcelain keepsake ornaments and other great gifts. Enter my store and you will enter the dark side of my mind! Studio Floor 13 is small at the moment, but I will add several more creepy and goofy designs and products in 2017.

Flirty Polka-Dot Vintage Aprons on eBay - A few more aprons never hurt anyone!

Wearing a vintage apron can truly perk up your day while at home doing chores. Housework and cooking do not have to be boring or depressing! Put on a frilly apron, put on some upbeat vintage music or your favorite tunes and put on a smile before you start doing your cooking and cleaning, and your chore list will get shorter in no time at all! I like aprons so much I had to put another set at the bottom of this lens. I chose polka dot aprons for this last set because they are perky, lively and they make me want to dance...seemed like a good ending to me!

      Really wonderful lens, Vicki. I've spent quite a bit of time here today. I adore aprons - only have a couple vintage, but now feel confident about finding more. My mother-in-law has sewn many aprons for me out of cool fabric she finds (some vintage inspired). Lots of great information and inspiration. I look forward to getting some of the books and patterns you recommend...and learning more about vintage aprons. The video about the apron exhibit gave me a great idea for displaying all of my aprons (and those I've yet to purchase).

      Thank you again!

      You might want to take a look at my lens on Feedsack Dresses. I love vintage fabric. So far, I've held off collecting aprons (but my mom and sister collect them).

      Wow, who'd ever thought that there was this much and varied information on aprons.

      You've done an excellent lens!

      Great lens - I love aprons! Just got a really cute vintage 1950s half-apron pattern the other day that I'd like to try out!

      I like this lens. I need to wear apron always due to my baking hobby. :)
