Half Apron from Canada.
I found this in an op shop today, and had an interesting discussion with the lady behind the counter, about its origin. She thinks it was a souvenir brought back here for someone who didn't wear aprons, and discarded it with other stuff destined for the op shop.
I pounced on it as soon as I walked in to the shop because it is so beautifully stitched, and an unusual design for an apron. I was surprised to find a label on the back of it in French. Some of the words are a bit hard to make out, but I think it says:
Tisse a La Main Hand Loomed
STE Madeleine, Quebec
Fabrique au Canada. Made in Canada.
