Collecting vintage Aprons have been a real passion of mine for years !
Beautiful, unique and diverse Aprons from France and America mostly but every now and then I make other discovery.
The Old-time Apron' that served so many purposes. The principle use of apron was to protect the dress underneath. It was also because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons used less material. But along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven. From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. It was wonderful for drying children's tears,...When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids. People have been wearing aprons as protective garments and fashion statements since ancient times,..I don't think I ever caught anything from an apron - but love!

My Apron Collection bring a new perspective to how to wear it.
For some design and during the summer days I will bring them up over my breast and use the long cord to wrap around my waist and attach in front of my belly. They can be wore as a beautiful top on shorts, skirts, pants and dresses.
They all have been embellish with all kind of special materials... as a ribbon creating an elegant bow, vintage button appearing as a jewel asking for attention, pearls or medallion attracting the eye and many more creative details.
