Apron, Sugar Sack
This is an adult's waist apron, made from a Colonial Raw Cane sugar sack, which is stamped on the reverse.
We believe that this was made by Frances Crump, who lived in the District and probably made this apron for yard work during the war years. Frances was known for being thrifty, and would no doubt have had a good sense of 'make do and mend'. Frances included a hankie pocket on her apron, and the ties are joined so that not a scrap of fabric was wasted.
