Making Vintage Aprons, 6x6 oil painting

A few years ago, I got really interested in vintage aprons -- the kind our moms and grandmothers used to wear around the house.  I remember in the 1950s there were quite a few very cute styles.  Since I like to sew almost as much as I like to paint, I decided to make a few.  This painting is from a photo my husband took in the process of making matching aprons for his daughter and granddaughter.

Aprons have quite a history, and there are lots of websites devoted to vintage styles. Who knew they would become so popular again?
