That's when an apron could be a safety device.

I sometimes remember to wear one when I am baking. Lots of my clothes are black, so flour really shows.

LOL, Addie! May be time for a new husband!

I have some antique aprons I've hung on pegs as decoration. I find my old sweatshirts to be acceptable kitchen couture. I have some utilitarian aprons I made if I'm wearing clothes that need protection.

Depends on what I'm doing. For the most part, I'm a tidy cook but when I'm into a task that will splatter/spit, I wear an apron.

When I am up to my elbows in flour, I always wear an apron. That's because invariably when flour and I are in the same solar system I'm wearing black or navy blue.

I sew a lot and collect vintage patterns, some of which are wonderful aprons from the '20s and '30s and I've made several of them to use. I love them. They do what I think an apron should do...cover you so your clothes are protected.

If I am making anything that has a chance of being messy, I put on an apron. I have two; one red and one black, and I bought both of them at the kitchen supply store because the strings are long enough to tie them in the front!

In school we were required to wear an apron which was probably a very good thing. I have both full and half types but prefer the full. And I iron mine too. ;)

The ones I make have ties long enough to cross at the waist in back and then tie in the front. That tie at the side is a perfect place to hold a towel.

I never understood the half apron. If I get food on my clothes, it's usually in the bosom area so those half aprons don't keep me clean! My mom used a smock style that slipped over her head and tied on the sides at the waist. Covered the entire upper body and had plenty of pockets for things. Don't see those kind much anymore.
