Thank you! I really do love the style of that apron. It is sort of like an old fashioned cobbler's apron, but a bit different. I find I can't wear aprons that have string straps around the neck, because they give me a back ache and droop down in the front. This apron is made to my measurements (I spoke to the woman on the phone who makes them, and she had me measure a few different body parts) and their are no strings around the neck. The back part just slips around my head, and it lays perfectly flat on my back. The material is not hot at all, and comes out of the dryer looking great. Rose Bouquet is the pattern.
I also bought one of her 1940's aprons in the Christmas Village pattern that I wear for the holidays. I love the fabric, but actually like the style of my other apron better. I find that the Rose Apron gives better coverage around my front, so it protects my shirts better. I don't like half aprons at all, because I tend to mess my shirts up right in the front--so a half apron doesn't cut it. My holiday apron looks like this but is in the blue holiday ribbon pattern:http://www.stitchthrutime.com/1940_apron.html
I have a few aprons with the strings around my neck from Home goods that I never wear at all anymore--they are just so uncomfortable to me.
