Welcome

Hi and welcome to my Blog. This blog is dedicated to Timeless Aprons. I am so excited to see that after 40 years a new generation of women are rediscovering the pleasure of putting on a pretty apron. I hope to share with everyone the Timeless Joy of having and wearing an apron and how it isn't a symbol of anything other then Home and Love.

I specialize in making aprons that actually fit the plus size and full figured woman as well as the Big and Tall man.

BoHo Smock

: Yup another new style!  Boho Smock or Jumper in a Homespun look made from Natural Osnaburg Muslin.   It is designed to be worn over at least a blouse, it is generously cut so can be worn over anything. Gathers at the neckline and top of the razor back.


 
 The shoulder straps are abt 1.5 inches wide and they swoop down to bind the arm opening. The pockets edges are bound with bias tape and than turned inside under, a gusset is added at the bottom of the pocket for a saggy look and for a roomy pocket, then they are double sewn on.
The frayed flowers are pins, so they can be removed and/or placed in different locations. (see 3rd picture)

All seams are sewn in the French lingerie method and edges are bound in bias tape to ensure a nice clean look and stronger seams. (see 4th picture)
