1950s Ballerina Reversible Apron with Swag Border Print - 50s Novelty Print Red Half Apron - Edgar Degas - Medium Large - NOS Deadstock

$ 45.00

1950s ballerina print apron is a darling find - and it's reversible! The first side has a scenic 50s red novelty print of Impressionist ballerinas, inspired no doubt by painter Edgar Degas. The second side has a layer of sheer red organdy, as well as a panel of pockets with swag border print to match. What's extra special about this side is that the sheer layer half-exposes the ballerinas, so they appear misty and shrouded behind the organdy. A terrific find from deadstock!
