This linen apron was made in 2015, for "Hell On Wheels". The fabric was woven with different colours of thread in the warp and weft, creating a "shot" effect.

The pocket has the same machine-made fagoting detail.
This apron was made from a scrap of rough-weave silk fabric, hand hemmed on three sides and with ties of petersham ribbon.
