I do like a nice apron. Although some seem to wrap themselves around my neck a bit and the bib sticks out at the front, but Hey Ho, if it has a pretty pattern and bright colours I don’t worry about it.
When I set up the Secret Tea Room I wanted some bright red aprons and bought some material and got out the sewing machine and beavered away until I created a couple.
Then came a few trips to Fennel cookery school and I added 2 black aprons to my collection.
A chance entry into a blog competition resulted in me wining a Rachel Taylor Apron, so colourful it’s like a little ray of sunshine
Then came a chance find ‘Sophie Allport’ in one of my favourite colour’s, blue. I wore this at Clandestine Cake Club when I went to help Kerstin set up the event yesterday.
I have a tiny little frilly white apron, that I’ve had for a few years. But I like the bib sort and would love to find the old Vintage type where the ties loop through the neck loop and tie around the waist, which I think eliminates the ‘baggy bib syndrome’ at the front.
Do people still wear aprons?
I love to wear mine when baking.
Note **** If you have a picture of you in your apron please email me it as I’d like to add it to this page. thesecrettearoom(at)hotmail(dot)co.uk
