Spread some love♥ in the kitchen with this absolutely darling apron! Flirty style apron with a vintage/retro look that you or that special someone will absolutely love to wear. This would make a great gift!

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 Robert Kaufman and Clothworks. "All my Heart" in black is used for the main panel, and the contrast neck panel is "Cherie" by Clothworks. "All my Heart" in pink was used to make double-fold bias tape and trim the apron and pockets as well as a touch of red rick-rack trim.

This is a size Misses Small (Sz. 10-12). This apron can be simply slipped over your head once neck ties are adjusted and has two waist ties, two pockets and a very slimming look, complimentary to all figures.

♥♥♥♥♥♥ 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.
