My daughter has that apron!

I OTOH have 3, white cotton patient exam gowns from the 60's. I rescued them from a medical practice that was closing, almost 20 years ago. They cover everything and are infinitely bleachable and seemingly indestructible. I wear those if I am going to be cooking "all day". To whip up dinner, I usually just pull an old (already ruined) shirt over what I am wearing. At Christmas, I get out my grandmother's vintage Christmas hostess aprons, but only for display.

The aprons of today are mostly useless in my mind so I make my own. I like the kind that wrap around a person. That prevents the stains that come from wiping hands on your sides.

Hello, Grandma Rose. I have a terrible habit of wiping my hands on my backsides. A full-wrap apron might help, I suppose, but I also don't want a pair of tomato-stained handprints back there. Any design solutions?

I'm too lazy to put the apron on most of the time....the only one I have I bought because it has cats on it. And I only bought it because we had found this cat-shaped wall-hook and I wanted something to hang on it.



We...uh....we like cats.

I work from home...most of my clothes are "dog clothes" because I share my life with three drooly, hairy Saint Bernards. To get the drool off my black jeans, I have to wash them twice and add white vinegar to the rinse each time. Getting tomato stains (or pomagrante stains) out of clothes is a lot easier than getting "drool shadows" out of black jeans! (Says she who dresses in the back entrance when she has to go meet clients--with the dogs behind the baby gate on the other side).

I have multiple white aprons fromwhen I worked in the bakery, they actually get worn for everyday cooking. My "Darkside," "Chef Pigs" and "Coffee" aprons are fpor after everything is cooked...in other words, I liked them so I bought them.

Oh my! Three Saint Bernards! I lived with one very sweet Saint Bernard for about two months and that was quite the experience. When he shook his head it sounded like a flock of pigeons taking off and he would hit opposite walls with slobber. At least he didn't pull on the leash when I took him for a walk. The huskies thought it was hilarious to pull on the leash if I had my arms full of groceries.

I know this is the apron thread but the mention of the St. Bernards reminded me of a long forgotten menory. Growing up the pastor of my church owned a pair of them. The female gave birth to a litter of 14! (they said it was some kind of record).They had quite a pack of animals running around their relatively small ranch style house for a time but oh my, what fun!

Wasn't there a DC Travelling Apron that was making the rounds a few years ago?

In reply to Spork about apron design. Mine is very close to the apron that has been shown by Beth. I made my own pattern to fit my needs but it is not reversable. Grandma Rose
