The His-n-Hers apron pattern (most are written as “Mr. & Mrs. Aprons” on the pattern envelope) appears here and there in the timeline of vintage sewing patterns. It looks like a cute idea, but my question is, did men actually wear their matching aprons? I don’t remember my dad EVER wearing any apron, even to sling bbq sauce and burn meat on the backyard grill. Could we get our modern day Daddy-O’s to wear them now?

His n Hers aprons

Was the idea that you were supposed to wear them together when you hosted a cook out? And judging by the envelope pattern artwork, was it to mark you as the official Host & Hostess at the more formal home parties? Did the guys actually pitch in to make the canapés?
