Just when I thought I had seen everything, a friend sent me this video on "Haute Hostess Aprons" designed by Elizabeth Scokin.
These simple aprons are "big news". Elizabeth says that you aren't supposed to cook in them. You are just to look glamourous. I need more than an apron to make that happen.
The "big news" to me is the "BIG PRICE" that she gets for these hostess aprons. I can't believe that someone would pay from $100 to $300 for a simple apron that requires dry cleaning. But, I guess "Oprah" and "Martha" have them and that helps to make them desirable to folks who can afford them.
When I was a kid, I made aprons and sold them door to door for 50 cents. I know that was eons ago, but still $300 is really beyond belief for a yard of polyester or nylon or even silk fabric and a little trim.
Beginners can sew these aprons in an hour. Get out your sewing machines and stitch up some haute hostess aprons for yourself and your friends. You don't really need a pattern for this sewing project, however, there are lots of patterns available.
Preshrink your fabrics and trims to make your apron washable.
Design your own and give them as gifts. Think outside the box for fabric ideas. Check out the fabrics in Elizabeth's aprons.
If you really want to buy one, go to Haute Hostess Aprons. Or, show the site to your husband and tell hem how much you save him by sewing.
Think I will check my "stash" to see what glam aprons I can sew.
Aren't you glad that you sew? It just makes sense!
