Vintage Holiday Dress-Up Aprons

Here are frivolous aprons that look more at home in the living room than the kitchen. They're enlivened with all sorts of sparkling trims and are designed to go to a party.
From a 1959 Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Ideas magazine, this four page spread on Dress-up aprons made for holiday giving -- complete as shown with patterns. (Click to see large scans.) And, before I forget, check out my article at CQ: Collecting Female Uniforms: Vintage Aprons.

The funny thing about these aprons (my mother had one that was really fetching) is that they would protect your clothes from precisely nothing, since you're more likely to spill or splash on your front than your lap when cooking. Do you think women had several to coordinate with different outfits? eek.
