ISO Aprons

I am looking for aprons. Not the "butcher/barbecue" type but women's aprons, either half-aprons or full aprons. Old or vintage aprons are great!

Kathy, I don't sew. I was looking for a source to buy vintage aprons. Sometimes people have a few that they don't use, left over from a grandparent.

I had an apron that my grandmother made in high school. I wore it lovingly and wore it out. I hated to throw it away but it was just a bunch of threads by the time I got rid of it.

You should look at some garage sales and also on ebay. I picked up a few at a garage sale for under $1 each, thinking I'd use them to make cute dresses for my daughter. When I didn't do it, I looked on ebay to sell them and found they were worth about what I paid. I saw them in big lots for next to nothing.

Barbszy,
I'll keep a lookout for you on these.

Too bad you don't sew. Aprons are really easy to make. And if you get on their mailing list, you can get patterns from Joann for $.99(during their sales).

I took sewing in high school. I have made several costumes for my daughter for plays in community theatre. I think it is a lost art now-many schools have gotten rid of or scaled back on home ec.

I know math & science are important but so are being able to cook & sew/mend for yourself.

I have a couple of vintage half-aprons around here somewhere that I've had for quite a while. I make aprons and sell them, though, so if there's anything in particular you'd like, feel free to email me. Are you interested in half aprons or full aprons with a bib-style front?

I like full aprons (since most of the mess I make while cooking lands on my top half, not my bottom half!) but not the "butcher style."

Here is a picture of an apron I have that was handmade. I like this kind or the old-fashioned wraparound kind.

That looks like a halter top dress. I can't honestly say I've seen any styled like that with the scallop neck.
