Vintage Apron Inspiration!
Cooking...it has to be done and for many it's a joy, especially when you have lots of time and ingredients! The trouble with me is that I end up cooking a million things at once, as quickly as possible, and getting flour, margarine, icing sugar and 100s and 1000s everywhere!
So what better solution than a stylish apron to keep all of those ingredients at bay?
Now obviously you cannot have just any old apron, and an 'off the shelf' number just won't do....it has to be made with love, and for me it has to have retro styling, so recently I had a little scout around for some vintage apron inspiration.
First up are some pretty wonderful halter neck numbers from Loula Belle at home, made in great fabrics these have such style you could imagine wearing them out on a Summers day! Extremely tempting, I can imagine holding a dinner party and refusing to take my apron off!
Looking for something with true vintage styling? Look no further than myRetro textiles - this family run business local to me in Dibden, Hampshire use beautiful pastel fabrics. What I love is that all of the apron designs remind me of my Nan and Gran. Seemingly the patterns are straight out of the 1940s and 50s - Just fabulous! These are stocked at Fairweathers Garden Centre in Beaulieu, as well as being available online.
Now if frills are your thing, Made by FeeFee is for you! Fiona makes aprons to order and creates aprons just asking to be danced in...imagine rocking around the kitchen in one of these little numbers!!
