Here's an apron I recently finished for my grandmother. I dolled miss "Janie" up with vintage- like stitches and trim. Its waist tie attatches to the bodice with a button hole- an antique touch!

This lovely lady boasts simplicity with a touch of class. She is a v-necked, one-piece cover up with a large, sectioned front pocket, waste band and ties. She can be created in a miriad of combinations depending upon your taste or kitchen decor. If ruffles and lace are not your forte, "Janie: could be your gal!!

She is a half apron adorned with
various trims of your choosing
ie. velvet ribbon, ric rac,
vintage buttons, etc. To
transport mixing spoons you will
find a convenient front pocket.
Francie can be made with your
own color combinations.


Pretty Petunia is a bibbed beauty with layers of ruffles sure to don its wearer with feminity. Three coordinating fabrics of your choice make up this lovely. Sample is adorned with a homemade yo-yo, however you can choose a bow, homemade or silk flower, or any other embelishment you desire. This could be adapted easily to the smaller "Petunias" in your kitchen!


Abby was my inspiration- my first creation! She is a full skirted apron bedazzled with yards of coordinating ribbon and laces of your choosing. Photo shows Abby with the finishing touch of a homemade rose made from fashionable trim - compliments of my mother! Abigail costs a little more because of the extra fabric she needs, but well worth it as you welcome your guests to a decadent "amis déjeuner".

From the time I was very young, I always remember seeing my mother in her apron. It has always, to me, been a simple reminder of the good days at home. Whether to bake fresh snickerdoodle cookies or hosting a family get- together; teaching a child to paint or just a tastely displayed token of good fashion; aprons are an ingredient to any home.
