I love adding to my vintage apron collection. As much as I love making aprons, I love finding vintage ones even more! It's fun to imagine the women who wore these aprons and the circumstances in which they might have worn them. And I'm drawn to the whimsical and sweetness of the fabrics used in these vintage beauties, even though there are gorgeous, fun and funky fabrics widely available today. I suppose it's the nostalgia of a vintage apron(heck, vintage anything)that gets me.
These are two of my more recent vintage apron finds.
This one is even more adorable in person. The print is little clowns/men holding umbrellas and giant raindrops. I love the shades of gray and brown w/the big orange border. SO sweet!And this. Swoon! Cobbler aprons are my favorite style...even though they aren't so figure flattering on me! I don't know why I'm drawn to these more, there's just something a little extra sassy about a cobbler apron!Earlier this week, I scored two more FABULOUS vintage aprons(one is for the fellas). I'll be sharing them next week!
