Aprons are all the rage these days.
I first noticed their popularity early last summer when Robin and I were wandering through a farmer’s market in Boise. One booth displayed a treasure trove of aprons made of fun, colorful fabrics and shaped like sundresses. Peeking at the stitching and back of the aprons, Robin studied their design for a moment and confided, “I could make these!” A couple weeks later Robin and I were walking through San Francisco when bright swaths of material in a fabric shop window caught our eyes: the mannequins were wearing stylish aprons. From the smaller city to the bigger city, in Anthropologie and Sur la Table, wherever we went, aprons were taking kitchens by storm.
A month ago I got to stop dreaming about what apron I wanted and got to put on an apron made just for me by Robin. Her sewing abilities proved spectacular, and I LOVE the apron she made me. Thanks so much, Robin!
