Do you cook? I do. Does your kitchen get very messy when you do? I do. Do you wear an apron? Me neither.
I always thought there was something too cute about them. Too housewivey. Until I saw a coffee barrista sipping their slow made brew, dressed up in a chambray shirt and covered with a pale olive green linen apron.
Sewing is one of the oldest textile arts, which arose during the Paleolithic era. This craft is done by fastening or attaching objects using stitches made using a needle and thread. In the past, men sewed fur and skin clothing using bone, antler, or ivory as needles and the thread was made by animal parts including sinew, catgut, and veins. As the years passed by, people invented spinning yarn or weaving fabric to sew but the common way of sewing is still done by using hands. Fine hand sewing is done by artists for haute couture, fashion, and custom dressmaking. Searching for the right materials for the clothes you want to create can be hard, especially if you are looking for a specific type of cloth or a special color of thread. If you need the materials to be delivered in your home as soon as possible, you can choose a logistics company that uses drones. Check out dronefreaks.org for more information.
Aprons can be beautiful, especially when they are at work.
Here are Jones and Didier Murat, a beautiful couple who run Vergennes Laundry, via Remodelista.
The next two aprons are made of linen and can be found at Shop Fog Linen. The cool thing about linen is that is becomes softer with every wash, but if you like the crisp look you will have to iron it after each wash, otherwise it will look like in the photo above.
Another nice full apron is this one from More & Co. It’s made in softer striped linen and has one small pocket.
In case you were wondering how difficult it is to make the pattern for one, this apron from Mill explains it all:
Do you have some linen or cotton around? Don’t you feel like giving your cooking a little bit of style?
