Once upon a time – a time not so long ago, the average woman would have owned only a few dresses. In order to protect them and decrease the amount of household laundry she would have to do, she would wear an apron while doing her daily chores. Nowadays, the average woman’s wardrobe has expanded and her access to modern laundry equipment has increased. And yet, while technically less of a “necessity” the apron continues to serve perhaps its greatest purpose. Putting on an apron makes a statement – it is a commitment to (at least temporary) productivity. That joy can also be shared with children. Meg from Sew Liberated (an incredible blog) shares her sewing pattern for a Montessori Apron for Children. Having made four of these aprons already, biehus can highly recommend the pattern!
