If you have a moment, be sure to read the "History of the Apron" below, it's sure to make you smile.
Fabrics are 100% cotton from Amy Schimler's "All My Heart" for Robert Kaufman, Confections Cupcakes in vanilla, and the soft pink handmade binding is also 100% cotton. I will gladly add a pocket to the front for those wanting a small pocket on the apron.
This is a size Medium (Sz. 6-8). This apron can be simply slipped over your head, has two waist ties, a curved hemline and a very slimming look, complimentary to all figures.
* Apron length is 33" from top of shoulder or 27" from top center front panel
* Each waist tie is 29" long (you can easily wrap these around to the front if you wish.
I recommend cold water wash; and dry on low setting or line dry and lightly press. Fabrics were prewashed before sewing, so there should not be any shrinkage.
You can also convo me for custom order of this style apron in different fabrics.
♥♥♥♥♥♥ THE HISTORY OF APRONS♥♥♥♥♥♥
The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath, because she only had a few,it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and they used less material, but along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven. It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.....from the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven. When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids. And when the weather was cold grandma wrapped it around her arms.
Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.. Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.
From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables.
After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.
In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees. When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds. When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men folks knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.. It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes.
