Once upon a time, the apron was a staple across the country, hanging from hooks and door knobs in every kitchen. Back in the day, people laundered clothing less frequently, so whatever they were wearing needed to get multiple wears before the laborious task of clothes-washing took place. Enter the apron. It served as a practical way to protect the wearer’s clothes from the rigors of the home and the farm.
While I know several people who wear them today, I’m willing to bet many people don’t wear an apron, but that should change! They’re the perfect item to quickly dress up a mediocre outfit, (like when you have to answer the door unexpectedly!), but more importantly, when you’re cooking up a storm or quickly gathering some eggs, you’ll want to keep your nice outfit from being…flocked. Seriously, there are many reasons to wear one, and I hope you share yours, but in the meantime, let’s tell you about these handmade beauties.
Made with both new and reclaimed fabric and notions, each of these aprons is made from scratch, with special adornments and details added every step of the way. One of a kind, your apron has been carefully designed and sew to be functional and cute. I add little touches along the way, so even if the fabric is the same, some tiny details might be different, such as bodice buttons on one, zig zag trim on another.
