A vintage pair of pinnies

A lucky find on eBay, these two wrap around pinnies are new old stock, and probably in the region of 60 years old.  They have no manufacturer markings or labels whatever, but knowing the source I imagine that they're made by Pencraig, and that the really superb roller printed cotton fabric was by Tortus.  I'd need to be a bit slimmer to wear these unfortunately, but they are really beautiful.
