This year for xmas I asked for a custom made apron from Sarah at the Cornish Hen. She does beautiful work and I wanted something to keep myself from getting so messy while practicing my cooking and baking skills.
I made cookies recently while K was doing more painting in the dining room and actually remembered to snap a couple of photos of the apron while I was at it. The design of this apron is genius! It’s gathered on the sides, so the straps slide through and are completely adjustable. You can put the top as high or as low as you want to, and you can tie the ends wherever it suits you.
I like to have my entire front as covered as possible, so I hike that thing way up. I also prefer to have things tied above my natural waist (I hate tight things at my waist!), and this apron allows me to tie it empire-waist-style. So comfortable! As you can see, Sarah put contrasting fabric on the ends of the ties, as well as contrasting layers of ruffles at the hem. So cute! There’s also a nice deep side-access pocket which is perfect. If I forget to take off my rings before I get started, I can slip them in the pocket and know that they will not fall out. It’s also handy for carrying my phone in an accessible place. These photos are awkward and don’t do the lovely fabric justice – it’s just beautiful! I highly recommend checking out Sarah’s shop.
