Today I've been tidying out some drawers and came across my grandma's apron. It is very delicate and slightly discoloured due to it being about 110 years old. I believe that she wore the apron when she was in service and I'm sure I was told that it was kept for best and worn on a Sunday.
The thing that stands out about the apron is the beautiful embroidery. I know that my grandma did embroidery so it is likely that she she embroidered these flowers herself.
