Finally! A beautiful apron for older girls (7-12 year olds) that is simple and youthful but not childish or cutesy. Get your kid to help out in the kitchen without using an adult apron that goes down to her ankles! This apron's style incorporates an elastic neck strap with no hardware to get caught in hair. The waist strap attaches with Velcro, which makes for easy on and off. It features a double pocket in the front for keeping a towel handy or stuffing with extra paintbrushes or the ever-present phone. It is fully lined, made of a soft cotton, and is edge stitched for extra durability. It should stand up to many washes. The red stripe fabric was designed by Sister Parish, who decorated the Kennedy White House, and was hand printed at a family-owned textile mill very near my house. The combination of the red swirls and red stripe accents are fun and friendly, but sophisticated enough that your older girl will be proud to wear it. It ships free in the US.

Aprons for older kids kids are 23 inches (58 cm) long in the main body. They fit children from about age 7 to age 12. Wash warm or cold with like colors. I find line drying leads to less ironing (but...iron a child's apron??? hmmm...), but you can also dry on medium if you like. Remember to seal the Velcro before washing, or put the apron in a lingerie bag to prevent it from sticking to other clothes.
