Thank you for the fashion show.

much obliged

at one point I had the silly idea of selling them on eBay, but considering I have $20. in the material, and it takes me 3 hours to complete one apron, the asking price was steep

Economies of scale and mass production are the key. Figure that bit out and yer on your way.

My favs are made from heavy linen or denim. They are homemade, have wide waist-high pockets across the front, ties (apron strings) long enough to permit me to tie them in front, wide enough to provide full chest coverage and some backside coverage.

Mine is one I bought from Pampered Chef. I like it as much as I like my Pampered Chef pizza stone! It is denum and has lasted about eight years so far. I have also made some, but this is still my favorite. It has great pockets, and the ties adjust so you can cover more or less up top. It covers well.

I wear a Boca Burger apron and bought one for my son while he cooks on his Coast Guard ship. Conversation piece and with nice ties. We lived in Boca when the burgers were actually developed and made there. Its a nostalgic thing

I have a super cute apron with cupcakes on it and cute little ruffled pockets.

I ground up some chuck today and since I have a new apron that I haven't used yet, and when grinding I have ended up with bits of meat attached to the front on my shirt I wore it today, finally.

I wish the ties were just a touch longer, or I wasn't quite as far to get around.
