This apron is drafted based on an actual garment as seen in an 1872 pattern catalog. It is designed to be worn with an underskirt and petticoat TV101 or TV108. The apron is flat in front , and has wide sashes that tie over the bustle and hang down the back. This style works well if worn with a bodice that has a long basque behind to cover the tie. It is shown here with TV400 Bodice.
A very simple apron, it is suitable for a nice visiting skirt, or with elaborate trimming, would make a nice ball gown overskirt.
