Fabric: Prooobably not natural. I think it's some sort of poly net with white dots kind of painted on it.
Pattern: None, just kind of eyeballed it from the pictures and prints.
Year: I think lacy, frilly aprons were fairly prevalent through the 18th century amidst upper classes, but the dot print and the ruffle might lean it more towards the last quarter?
Notions: Off-white linen thread, ivory silk ribbon.
How historically accurate is it? It's definitely no reproduction, that's for sure. I guess I was wanting to make something that just resembled extant transparent aprons in life and print, sort of suggesting rather than duplicating to a T.
Hours to complete: Steadily working, maybe 10? The rolled hems gave me fits!
First worn: Yesterday for a try-on!
Total cost: I think around $15 for the old curtain and the ribbon.
The apron on me. It's HUGE. I think it's too big still, so feedback would be appreciated. It's kind of fun though and makes me feel very girly! Pardon the iPad, with nobody in the house to take pictures, I have to make do with a large mirror.
