So now here it is!
The Dutch word for apron is, ‘schort’ and just today I discovered another old Dutch word, ‘boezelaar’.
When I think back in time, my grandmothers both wore aprons all the time except on Sunday and in the evenings. When my grand mother died I always kept one apron as a sweet memory to her.
Than there is this sweetie,
I always thought it was mine, but no, it's from my sister. She got it for her birthday when she was 4. We treasure it!
And this morning I was going through some old books in search for aprons.
In this book, from 1924, I found the new (old) word, "Boezelaar".
"apron for the servant" and "Reform apron" (1924)
And this week I finished restyling these two aprons for children.
We put one in the shop.
Well I'm off now to my mothers attic.... she just called, she has some old aprons...
Have a great day,
