"Reminds me of both my grandmother's, never saw them in pants, always a dress with apron to cover.."
"My granny always wore an apron. But then back then, most ladies didn’t have a huge number of dresses and so the apron was to prevent the dresses getting dirty. They were used for wiping tears, for carrying tissues, for wiping hands on and for lifting lids off pans."
"Pauline Jewett how very true.In some cases it was like a comfort blanket."
"My Granny and Great Aunts always wore these aprons, over skirts/dresses and never trousers. They were all farm women/wives. Sadly don't think have any photos, as they'd have taken the pinnies off for pics. I wore a pinny as a young child, at times. I remember one with a 'Pinky and Perky' Pig design.Prob saved on hand washing of heavier, woollen clothes."
"I remember my Grannie always in an apron with several nappy pins attached for my younger cousins - and always buttons in the pocket."
"My granny always had her peenie on."
"Pinny, my grannies always wore pinnies!"
