A woman's rectangular apron. Made from two equal sized pieces of black and green cotton (?) fabric, commercially made; hand sewn along one selvedge, creating a horizontal centre seam. The black tabby woven ground is patterned with grouped green stripes (woven as bands). Towards each edge is a vertical embroidered zigzag pattern: white, pink, yellow, blue, red, orange and purple wool (?) yarns. A line of machine embroidery in orange cotton runs along the outer side of this patterning and along the hem. Cream commercially made openwork trim, with a scalloped edge, is hand stitched to (most of) the sides and the hem. The top of the apron is turned and at each corner are stitched the ties, made from red and blue plaited wool yarns. A hole in the lower (centre) part of the apron.
