I signed up for eBay and was selling any and everything around the house, to help make ends meet. Then one day out of the blue, God showed me and gave me the courage to start selling Dresses that would please him.

The Old Order Amish and Mennonite Women have been wearing these types of dresses dating back to the 1800'S

Both the Amish and Mennonite Dresses come in many styles, colors, designs and sizes.

Some of the dresses have pin on capes, with half aprons, and some have a pinafore apron that ties in the back.

Pinafore: A dress length sleeveless apron that is worn over the dress, and ties in the back. It is separate from the dress.

The Old Order Amish Women From Pennsylvania: Have open capes that pin together in the front to form a V. The apron goes over the pinned cape area, and pins to the back of the dress.  

Please see the pictures, I'm showing a reversable cape, and how they pin it into a V in the first picture. In the second picture I'm showing you how to pin the apron on .

Some of the capes go to a point in the back and some in a square. Some are reversible.
