A while back I discovered an apron or two that I absolutely fell in love with. I asked my mom to try and recreate one of the aprons for me. She said in a week. I patiently waited and then I started to bug. She said it was finished and she mailed it off. I waited some more. Then, when my son's birthday package arrived from her, I thought surely it would be in there. Nope. I called her. She tried changing the subject. Then this weekend I got a package in the mail. It wasn't from my mom, but there was the most beautiful simple high waisted apron inside. I was smitten. My aunt found out that my mom was going to make it and decided to take action. She said it was the wedding present we never got. It was the best wedding present ever...well worth the 7 1/2 years of waiting. wink. wink. I love the simplicity of it. It's perfect in every way.
I am aware that my face is not in the pictures. Let's just say it wasn't a good day for my face. One of these days I will make my debut. Maybe. I am also aware that there are wrinkles in the apron from being folded...it is made of linen. When I tore it from the package, I put it on immediately. I knew I would be getting some serious wear from it, so I decided I had better take picture fast. I have barely taken it off since I got it.
The ties are even long enough to tie in the front. I love that!
