Beautiful apron. Professional stitching and finish touches. As a seamstress myself, I appreciate the small details. Very well made item.

About

Aprons by Elsies Flat

When I was a little girl, my great grandmother taught me how to sew.

Her name was Elsie and she lived in a housing complex called "The Flats" here in Minneapolis. During the great depression she created aprons from rags and sold them for a dollar at the local farmers market.

It is in her spirit that I now create custom aprons by hand for both men and women.

My aprons are unique because they are fully adjustable and I create them with patterns that I have designed myself. I shop for new, fun and interesting fabrics at least once a week and my store room of fabrics contains thousands of yards yet to be used.

I pride myself on offering the highest quality product at a fair price combined with fast shipping and great customer service.

I have now sold over a thousand aprons on Etsy and I'm very proud to say that many are return customers. I encourage you to look through my listings today and see what's new. Custom orders are also very welcome!
