New elegant pinafore apron…

I’ve added a new design to the range, a pleated pinafore apron ‘No14’, now on Etsy & Folksy

The apron has deep pockets concealed behind the pleated skirt, a box pleat in the bib, adjustable neck ties and long waist ties – the first three in this design are in crisp dark navy twill.

I’ve been working on this design for since before Christmas! …with several toiles and samples…

New ‘Boro’ style aprons…

I listed a new apron range on Etsy today!

Individual and unusual aprons pieced together from offcuts of denim and other cotton fabrics left from making the aprons in the In The Making range – taking inspiration from Japanese Boro clothing and vintage French and American rustic aprons, which were made from collected fabric scraps and usuable parts of worn out clothing.

I laid bits of fabric out on a big table and pieced each apron together like a jigsaw, balancing the different blue denim tones and complementing with contrasting ticking and red canvas.

New – ‘The Makers Market Apron’ – No12

A chance remark by a glassmaker on Instagram, about needing big pockets for craft markets, was the ‘lightbulb moment’ for designing this apron.

The aim was an apron that was brilliantly useful at craft fairs, beautifully made and intrinsically convey the wearer is a practicing artist/maker.
