I have a fond memory of my grandmother wearing just this kind of apron--a sort-of pinafore. She would wear it to cook, do laundry and take care of other household chores. I think this would be a great apron for me, since I tend to be a little out of control when I bake or do my stovetop cooking. Know someone who really gets into their cooking? Then this is the apron for you to get them!
The apron is made using the Happy Housewives anchor print from my Really Really Retro collection for Elizabeth's Studio and it is from the Etsy shop of Rebecca Jones. I love it! I may think about ordering this with a set of matching pot holders or oven mitts, which she also makes.
