Have you noticed that aprons are not made for curvacious women. I recently made a half apron which is large enough for most plus size women. It is made with 100% cotton fabric, and an up-cycled white cotton doily is used for a pocket. I added 3 small decorative buttons on the pocket flap. (This apron along with others will be available on my website shortly.) I originally planned to up-cycle some white pillow cloths with embroidery, but my mother reminded that most people would not want a white apron. Unless it is a decorative apron, white would not be a good choice. I remember reading about a group of Amish women wanting to wear print clothing so stains or dirt would not be as visible as with a solid color. That is so true. Have you noticed a t-shirt with a grease stain and how it stands out like a soar thumb? I think the apron turned out nicely. Behind my model is a display of auction finds. Thank you for viewing my blog. Blessings to you and yours!
