One of the responses to working and being inspired by the garden is to make aprons for gathering actions - as seen in some of the preserving party pics and along the way.
Here's some of my favourite examples of vintage aprons from the Kamakura-Shobo Publishing Co. Pattern Drafting books Vol. 1, 2, and 3, published in 1967, 1970 and 1972. My nanna brought Vol. 2 back from Japan around that time, and I always poured over it when I was young :o)
