My neighbor, while we were chatting one day, declared, "Everyone should have an apron." I already had an apron, didn't use it much and didn't think they were all that essential. Anyone who can't stand to get anything on their clothes seemed a little too persnickety to me anyway.
this pattern, and I was sold on aprons. I felt much more fetching wearing my apron than not, and laundry suddenly became easier!
I decided to spread the apron love around a little, and made this one for my younger sister's birthday.
