...which is it?
A popular item of clothing up until the 1970s, an apron or pinafore was used to protect a ladie's clothing from housework dirt. It resembled a dress, often sleeveless and was worn over clothing. Later on it was adopted as a fashion piece. Also known as a pinny, every once in awhile I like to don a traditional apron while preparing dinner - something very comforting about not splattering my day clothes.
Do you wear an apron while preparing meals? I'm also talking to you gents.... you never know.
