The apron is made from a small check green and white gingham. It is a half apron that ties at the waist, and is wider at the bottom than at the top, but it is not gathered. It has two pockets, with a "V" of lace at the top. There is white lace around the perimeter and the lace mirrors the shape of the pocket. It has a gingham waistband.
