Have you noticed the huge resurgence of aprons? My grandmother always wore one while cooking Sunday dinner after church to keep her dresses spotless. I love that aprons are unabashedly feminine and darn practical to boot. Here are seven of my favorite places to peruse:
1. Tie One On - Amy Carol at the Angry Chicken blog authors this great collection of all things aprony. Patterns, vintage, giveaways and more.
2. Sew, Mama Sew - Nice selection of apron patterns by specific designers. I particularly like the Domestic Goddess pattern by Amy Butler.
3. Jillie Willie - Flirty and fun! These aprons have bold colors and hip patterns that will make you want to wear the apron as part of your regular wardrobe. Pictured is the “Fiona.”
4. Domestic Darlings - These aprons are very flattering and affordable. At $20 who can resist and you can pick up a coordinating head band or an apron for your little girl that matches mommy’s. Pictured is “Pink Circles.”
5. The Apronista - In addition to pattern and apron tutorials you get some recipes to try while your wearing one. Apron by Morgan Moore.
6. Heavenly Hostess - I own one of their reversible halter aprons, but I have my eye on the over-the-top cocktail apron in ivory with black polka dots. If your apron looks this good it’s bound to rub off on your guests perception of your food. Yes?
7. Boojiboo - The retro-style aprons will make you feel like you’re channeling Lucille Ball, and how great is this craft apron? Perfect if you work craft shows or waitress. The center pocket has a velcro closure for security. This model is called the “Madison.
