1930s Great Depression reproduction apron pattern with full bib, ruffled hem and back ties for American Girl Dolls

Depression era aprons were often made from feedcloth, recycled material from sugar, flour, and livestock feed sacks. They were cut with an a-line silhouette to cover as much clothing as possible with a minimal use of fabric. During the depression people didn’t have the luxury of new clothing or a large wardrobe. Aprons protected existing clothing from damage during everyday chores.

Reproduction feedsack fabric is very popular and available at most local fabric stores.
