A pinafore apron or simply
pinafore is a type of
by women. It originates from "pin afore",
reflecting that the bib part of an apron
was earlier often secured to the chest using
pins. In British English,
corresponds to the American English term
types of apron designs are popularly referred
to as pinafore aprons.
In a narrow sense it is a full apron
with two holes for the arms that is tied
or buttoned in the back, usually below the
neck. While this is a garment for women
of all ages, it was commonly worn by girls
in America and Western Europe during the
late 19th and early 20th.
The term pinafore apron is also often
applied to a frilly
bib apron with shoulder straps that
criss cross in the back and tie in a ribbon.
Occasionally standard bib aprons are referred
to as pinafore aprons, but this usage is
confusing and should be avoided.
