Do you wear an apron? - Page 2

You ladies have some sexy aprons. It makes me want one.

I have an apron. I am "fluffy" so my body seems to collect food stains So I wear one while cooking, and also if I am cleaning with mainstream products, which is rare for me.

Sure do!

I don't have one, but it's on my list of things to find this year while yard-saling.

I wear one because I usually end up needing to wipe my hands on something while I cook. Aprons are much better than my clothes!

My SIL bought me a gorgeous one from Anthropologie. I do wear it when I cook, but it is so pretty that I don't want to get anything on it! Sometimes I'll wear DH's if I don't want to get that one messy.

I also have a few that tie at the waist from the 50s or the 60s - with translucent fabric. Those aren't going to stop anything from sirtying my clothes, but they are fun to wear!

I worked at a grocery store right out of high school and had to wear an apron as part of my uniform. It's a canvas material and really long. I wear it when I cook. I would love to have a really cute apron. Since I can sew I should just make myself one, but I've never gotten around to it.

I have a couple aprons, but I only wear them for crafts and painting. LOL

These are all so cute! I haven't even thought of wearing an apron... Do you find they are too bulky? Other than stain prevention (which is not a problem for this neat freak mama), what do you wear them for?

If anyone wants inspiration, go to Flickr and search aprons. OMG there are some super cute aprons and cute people wearing them! That definitely made up my mind.

I have a cute vintage-style apron I bought on etsy, but mostly I wear a plain twill (crafters/waiters) half apron with pockets. At home I prefer to wear my comfy yoga pants that do not have any pockets, so I wear the apron to toss all the random stuff I pick up as I go from room to room (playmobil toys, legos, hairbows).

I LOVE aprons. I find that getting "dressed" and putting on an apron really helps me get up and at it, for big cooking days. I pretty much wear aprons for cooking and baking, and sometimes "hostessing" though if I had a good one for it, I might wear one for cleaning as well. I only have a couple aprons, some of which I love, some of which I hate (I have a v-necked one that looks adorable. unfortunately, EVERYTHING falls right down the v onto my shirt or dress. oops). I want to make a few more (I have the fabric for one of them, the pattern for another, and I'm currently in a vintage linen apron swap, so I should be getting another as well as making one for another lovely lady ). If I had a few more aprons, I would wear an apron every time I cooked. But I find that aprons (other than ones used for "hostessing") need to be thrown in the laundry after 1 day's wear. And I just don't do laundry often enough to wear one every time I cook. Anyways, I'm a big apron fan.

Some resources for the apron lover (none of which am I particularly affiliated with in any way, though I am participating in the swap for the first time, and an "unofficial apronista," being a term used for apron lovers):

in terms of cute aprons, I'm loving these ones from boojboo on etsy, particularly the bella: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=59241
(and d-lux 57 is amazing too )

i too am a neat freak. however, they come in handy when cooking and i use them when i clean. no matter how "neat" you are, you can't prevent splattering when cooking or messes when baking.....unless you just don't do those things, and in that case then you don't really need an apron.

all i know is that i have expensive clothes that i don't want to ruin.

Couldn't help myself

I had to run out to Target for some stuff... and, after reading this thread, I bought an apron there. I've only used it once, and I love it already!

I wear an apron all the time. I have ordered two aprons from this woman who makes them:

Now, before anyone yells at me about how expensive they are--I know they are. But I bought these aprons 2 years ago, and I wear them every single day, often almost all day long. I use them to make meals, clean house--everything. They are so pretty, and so well made that I feel pretty in them and they still look just as new and beautiful as they did the first day I got them. My favorite is this one--the same exact pattern (Rose Pattern) and print of fabric (Rose). It fits me perfectly, and really suits my personality, I think:

Lisa, that is one lovely apron.

*tries to think out what the pattern would look like for that....* As much as there are a million aprons out there I'd love to buy, I generally don't feel right, myself, about paying for them, when I could make something like them. Of course, I feel right wonderful about getting them as gifts LOL
