Vintage Apron Bonnet Pattern I received one of these back in the early 70's. It didn't have the ruffle. I loved it. Somewhere in our military moves, it was lost. I'm so happy to see what had to be the pattern mine was made from. It's the perfect clothes hanging apron, and yes, it does convert to a sunbonnet. that's great for gardening.
The famous ” Feed sack dress” – 1940s ration fashion -- when the flour companies learned that the poor in the dust bowl were sewing flour bags together to make dresses and other clothing for the children, they began selling their flour in different decorative bags with flowers and such things printed on them so that the "clothing" made would be a bit more attractive and fun.
