Aprons for Dad



The origin of funny aprons and novelty aprons.
Before today people didn't have the luxury of owning extensive wardrobes and washing of clothing was not done on a frequent basis. Even in the 1940's and 1950's many folks used wringer washers, hung clothing on the line to dry, and every piece had to be ironed. Permanent press had not yet been invented, and although cotton jersey was available, most children and ladies wore woven cotton housedresses and play dresses. Shorts, tops, and slacks were reserved for beach, vacation or special occasions, and only for the most modern of ladies.  Aprons in the past and today, including funny aprons, i.e.;  what part of party funny apron, served a practical purpose. They covered up the dress underneath and protected it from soiling, and made washing easier - you could wash the apron every couple of days, but wore the dress underneath 4-5 days or a week. As well as being practical, they were funny.  Novelty aprons can be printed with many different messages, i.e.; real cool grandma aprons.  Housewives, school teachers, children, shop-keepers, even secretaries all wore various styles of aprons over their clothing daily. 


Early novelty aprons.

In 1939, the hit movie Wizard of Oz caused a huge resurgence in popularity of pinafores (many of them gingham). By the 1940's, novelty aprons gained a cinched waistline, and were often gaily trimmed with rick-rack, buttons, and pockets of contrasting color. This excerpt from fashion advice of the day regarding frocks, smocks, aprons, and housecoats in the 1940's: Early in the year is the time to make wash frocks for spring and summer - to have time to make them nicely - to do nice finishing, make nice buttonholes, and have such ready for wear." Before the funny and novelty aprons, i.e.; tuxedo funny apron, were available aprons were a serious fashion element, not just an afterthought cover-up! In the 1950's half- aprons of highly starched cotton organdy (sheer, see- through) trimmed with lace were popular for special occasions, as well as two- piece aprons and short smocks of bright cotton prints for every day.

Not much change has occurred for the household or barbecue apron since then. Most are still make from cotton; including the funny aprons and novelty aprons we carry on the site, i.e.; not easy being a mom novelty apron. The material is stronger and more stain resistant. Most are available with adjustable straps so they fit most people. Also they are available in many different colors to match today's fashions.  And of course the most important progress for funny aprons has been created by the use of silk screening.  You can have many different clever and funny sayings imprinted on an apron.
