My Aunt Elsie used to make us great aprons... really covered up y our clothes, and had big pockets. She would find such interesting fabrics and prints. I used to keep hers for when I was cooking for company.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

here is a link to the pattern I use.....another neat thing about this pattern is the neck strap is in two pieces, held together with velcro, so you can "unsnap" the neck strap and you don't have to pull it over your head.

dang ChefJune, maybe i could have traded you an apron for your cookbook?!

Watch out when you're frying bacon!

I have an apron that I wear when I'm doing something messy, like stemming strawberries.
My mom and grandma wore them all the time, though, and they also had pretty frilly ones for special occasions.
We get by with a little help from our friends

All you have to do is everything I do .... backwards and in heels..
Uncle Bob in heels? I've got to see the photos!!! LOL!!!

I generally put on an apron ... tend to wipe wet sink hands on it ... LOL!

P.S. I've found some nice aprons at Ross ... virtually same aprons as at Steinmart, but half the price.

I do wear it most of the time, not as much for my self, but rather as an example for my kids. So when they help, they do not get too dirty. I have at least a dozen or so aprons, most of them are comercial style, or is it profeccioonal style. Very simple, very functional.

I usually wear an apron while cooking in order not to get my clothes dirty especially if they are new or expensive clothes. Actually, I have only two aprons because if one got dirty, I have another one to wear. My favorite apron is the one my friend brought it to me from Italy. I don't like to use it while cooking difficult food because it is a valuable apron. Aprons come in many colors, but most chefs throughout the world prefer to wear white aprons while cooking.
