At 1840 Farm, we love to repurpose materials almost as much as we enjoy spending time together cooking in our farmhouse kitchen. This apron combines the two activities beautifully.

Our farmhouse aprons are constructed entirely from repurposed dress shirts. Each shirt is purchased from a charitable thrift store before being laundered and deconstructed. The purchase of these fabrics benefits local charities and gives back to the community. Your purchase will help to support the charitable organizations that provide these recycled fabrics for sale.

Each apron is as unique as the original shirts that are used to create it. Fabrics from multiple shirts are mixed and matched in a complementary fashion to create the final apron. Each apron has its own unique fabric combination and slight variation in style.

Because the dress shirts used to construct the apron have already lived a full life, the fabric may show normal signs of wear from standard use. This may include light fading of the fabric but will not include visible stains, tears, or rips. Instead, the fabric has a beautiful and lived in appearance. Each farmhouse apron is a true original and no two are exactly alike.

The design of our farmhouse apron takes advantage of the best a dress shirt has to offer, incorporating the original shirt’s style. Everything from shirt pockets to buttons and their corresponding buttonholes makes an appearance in the finished apron.

The finished apron features a neck strap that is fully adjustable thanks to the buttons and buttonholes from the original dress shirts. By moving the buttons up or down the row of buttonholes, our apron can be adjusted to fit an adult or a young child.

This apron features a bib made of white fabric from a wrinkle free Charles Tyrwhitt brand shirt and a skirt made from blue and white pinstripe fabric from a Vineyard Vines brand shirt. The neck strap and waist ties are made from a combination of these materials as well as contrasting fabric from other dress shirts. The bib measures 9 1/4 inches wide by 12 3/4 inches long. The skirt measures 25 1/2 inches wide by 20 1/2 inches long.

This apron is machine washable. It can be safely laundered on the normal cycle and dried on low to medium heat. If desired, the apron can be ironed for a crisp appearance. Because the fabric was intended as a dress shirt, it will iron easily and beautifully.

This listing is for the apron only. Other items shown in the photographs are not included in the sale price. Those items were used for photographic purposes only. Their use was intended to show the utility and style of the apron.
