My love of all things vintage continues to grow. So I was pretty excited when fellow vintage enthusiast Holly from Gidget Sews sent me some of her new vintage-inspired aprons. If you're embracing the "new domesticity" like so many of us are, you'll enjoy baking your next blueberry banana muffins while wearing one of these lovely aprons.
Holly makes aprons for women, children and dolls (of the standard American Girl or Canadian Girl/Maplelea variety). My daughter loves putting on aprons when Mom does and she was over the moon to get aprons for herself and her doll.
Holly lives in one of my most favourite cities: St. John's, Newfoundland. She moved there from Toronto in 2010. She has now turned her passion for knitting, crocheting and sewing into an Etsy shop. Inspired by vintage design, Holly uses 100% reclaimed/vintage material and/or eco-friendly material for her sewing projects.
Her children's aprons are full-length and double-layer, so they are sure to catch any drifting flour or spilled beverages.
Holly has now added adorable tote bags to her offerings too. She just listed an awesome "Hipster Fox" tote bag that somebody just has to buy (before I do!).
