According to Black and Garland, A History of Fashion, p. 137 (1990 ed.) - "Aprons, which had previously been used only by members of the lower classes, now became an element of fashionable costume... but the fashionably dressed are frequently portrayed wearing aprons either entirely made from, or at least trimmed with, costly lace."
