Alexandria was a pleasure to work with. She made 3 custom aprons for me as Christmas presents. They were gift wrapped and delivered very quickly. Her color combinations were great and the quality is very good!


Stitching Vintage Vibe into your Modern Kitchen

Welcome to Vintage Muses and thanks for stopping by!

I started making half-aprons as gifts while I was in college and last Fall, I at last decided to open an Etsy shop to see if a broader marketplace was as receptive to them as my friends were so Vintage Muses at last launched in October 2012.

The market for aprons is a saturated one where it seems like everything that can be re-imagined about their design has already been done. However, these aprons are a bit different because they are so silly and easy. You can add any color, any pattern, fit in any size of remnant and make it work. Once the shop opened and orders came in, I wanted to offer another option: Following along the line of inspiration for these half-aprons, I wanted to create a full-apron yet not lose the simplicity, ease, and vintage feel of the original piece. On the reverse side of the half-apron, I added snaps that were able to be attached to the bottom of a removable, sweetheart neckline apron “top.” This allows the apron to become a dynamic accessory where tops and bottoms can be matched, mis-matched, changed, and constantly renewed for a fresh look.

The removable tops keep the integrity of my original idea: aprons inspired by a vintage era, but applicable and appropriate for a modern kitchen, changeable and customizable to whatever you feel like being in the kitchen that day.

Customizing pieces and working with customers to make unique pieces is what I love most. If you don't see something in the shop that you like, chances are we can figure out something together that captures your vision!

Thanks so much for shopping and I hope you enjoy!

    I curate, own, and sew all the products in the Vintage Muses shop. My hope is the shop seamlessly links vintage inspiration with a modern perspective in every piece to keep old looking fresh and new looking classic.
