Old Fashioned Aprons

Posted on

I spent an hour this morning making myself an apron.  I have a few of the store bought variety.  My daughter Abigail will not work in the kitchen without putting one one.    Being fashion conscience  picky,  I wanted something prettier and more feminine.   I didn’t follow a pattern,  I just knew what I wanted and set forth making it.    The print is Alexander Henry’s “Pikes Peak Patchwork”.  (I love patchwork!)  I made the apron strings extra long to wrap around twice,  or,  if we are so blessed,  to fit around a pregnant belly.   (Or,  are they extra long to accomodate keeping all of my children tied to my apron strings?!:)  I must say it works pretty well.  It took me through lunch,   baking,  three sinkfulls of dishes, and laundry,  and my skirt is dry and spotfree!    I think I’ll make Abigail a new one too!

  1. I like your apron. Do I see pleats in the front? I have one I’m sewing by hand and hope to have it on my blog in a week or two and by the way, I admire your clean kitchen from the photo. Elizabethian Tea

  2. What a pretty apron! When I am in the last couple of months of pregnancy, none of my aprons fit. Brilliant idea to make the strings longer, just in case :)!

  3. Very cute! The girls have been working on their own aprons and this inspires me to make one for me.

    I so enjoy reading your blog…you’ve done a beautiful job!

  4. Truly lovely. Who would have thought an apron could look so great?!
