Some very good Apron Lore herein and a few cute patterns, as well. I have a feeling this was the "original" apron book, because all the others I have seen follow a similar formula.

The Apron book is full of beautiful pictures and a heap of 1950’s nostalgia. There are reminiscing stories about the aprons of childhood past as well as patterns to create new aprons. Staff picks 2009
