Making Memories From One Generation To The Next

I have many memories of my grandmother in her aprons…. shelling peas fresh from the garden, flour stained from baking rhubarb pies, and wiping my tears when I scraped my knee She had one to match each dress.

Carolyn Reede, named for my mother and my daughter, Laura was born to bring the generations together in early 2014 from a conversation about grandma’s aprons.

I have been a seamstress for over 30 years Most of those years I have been designing clothing for myself, my children, and later my grandchildren. Many of those years were spent in the bridal industry. I love all things sewing and vintage. Laura and I both have a love for designing.

Laura and I are a daughter and mother team working from 2 different states. Laura works from the big city of New York while I work out of Detroit Michigan. We have always worked well together. Laura and I both love designing, each of us bringing our own unique aspects to the design table which always makes for a fun time!

So, we started right away making aprons like Grandma’s that we sold to our family and friends. We quickly realized that although grandma’s aprons were pretty and practical in her day a lot has changed since grandma’s aprons. So, Laura and I set out to make a few changes to her aprons. The two of us have worked very hard to create something more practical for today’s busy lifestyle without sacrificing the charm of grandma’s aprons.

Carolyn Reede has come a long way since those early days. After much trial and error Laura and I have designed a product line we think you will love. We launched our Etsy shop in November of 2017. We have since been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, in the Los Angeles Daily News and several other publications.

In the near future you can expect to see several new product lines that are in the works. And soon you will be able to find Carolyn Reede on their own website as well as You can also find us on Facebook at and htps://www.instagram/carolynreedeofficial
