Aprons...do you have them, wear them, love them, hate them, make them?  I have three aprons and when I remember to throw one on, I LOVE them!  They protect my clothes and give me an instant dry spot for my hands or for drying off dishes from the dishwasher that have left over drips.

I asked my friends on  Instagram for patterns they liked or loved and was given a couple of suggestions.
( Adam was kind enough to take a photo for me :o) I love that boy!)

This one was highly recommended from Marie-Madeline Studio

Indygo Junction has an incredible selection of patterns!  I really am drawn to the Uptown Apron!

For an AMAZING tutorial for a half apron the FABULOUS Bari J has a free apron tutorial on her blog for this beautiful  (THANK YOU BARI J...I LOVE YOU!)

like you I have aprons but rarely remember to wear one. Must make more of an effort as they do protect from splashes etc. The type that come up with a band that goes round my neck get my vote, have the waist ones too but they do not protect as much. No excuse for not wearing as they hang on the kitchen door.

I need the one that goes all the way to the top…I'm constantly splattering stuff all over my shirt.

I've made four from McCalls M2947, with lots of gingham and ruffles. My favourites are the frilly 1950s housewife styles with full skirts. My late teen stepdaughter, seeing the ones I made for myself and my MIL, asked for her own.

I only tend to throw one on at Christmas, when I'm cooking the dinner but following the family tradition of dressing up for the meal. No idea why, it's the same 4 of us that start and end the day together, no-one else comes and goes!
