What Stay At Home Moms wore in 1931

In 1931 the stay at home Mom had to be "Trimly Fitted for Your Busy Hours", with slips, dresses and some pretty nice aprons. While of course, the kids needed "Modish Wear for School or 'Best'". I imagine part of Moms duties was to sew up all that Modish Wear!


  1. I love the idea of the tiered-back pinnie and the little pleated collar with the thin ribbon bow on 408 is just darling. That's going to find it's way on to my girls dresses.

  2. I wonder if that tiered back ruffle effect was for a 'dress' apron. I know my grandmother had fancy aprons for company and 'work' aprons for everyday.
