VERMONT APRON REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY!


Hey Neighbors,

Glad to see you At the Fence! How was your day today? I just have to share a really great company with you. The Vermont Apron Company was gracious enough to send me two children's apron sets for review and one ladies apron as a giveaway. I'll share the details on that one later. First I just have to tell you I love these apron sets. The first one is called Teacups and Birds. A real pretty purple with lime green and pink teapots and teacups with pink flowers and the pockets are are cream with branches and birds. It came with a matching Kerchief. These are adorable!!






The second apron is a tan with very thin red stripes that run both directions. I believe they call this Antique red. The apron has a very beautiful lace on the bottom. This apron came with a matching prairie bonnet. Both of the aprons have pockets that have an elastic gather at the top. The neck and waist of both aprons are gathered on drawstrings and can be adjusted as your daughter grows. Isn't that a great idea! And each apron has a bow in the center of the waist. This is a great gift idea.






Here is Vermont Apron's description of these aprons:
"We designed this full length Aprons for little girls to provide full coverage. The neck and waist are working drawstrings that allow for fit adjustments. As a child grows, the waist can be worn up higher Princess style and the skirt will widen to match the shape of the wearer."

And here is their description of the bonnet:
"Our Prairie Bonnet is a close replica to the vintage ones our Ancestral grandmothers wore.The Bonnet's body is machine quilted on a thin layer of cotton batting and measures 22" around the face with a 5" ruffle at each end. It measures 5 1/2" inches deep where it attaches to the back piece. It is gathered into the Bonnet body.This back piece allows for enough room to accommodate long hair put up in a bun to keep it clean and away from the sun."

Now Vermont Apron obviously carries aprons for woman in an amazing amount of styles. They also have aprons for men and boys. They have Chef Hats, Mob Caps, and as you have already seen they carry Kerchiefs and Prairie Bonnets. Stop by their website and browse through all they have available.

Vermont Apron is well worth sharing At the Fence. I have to admit I saved the best for last. And I have a confession, it was awful tempting to keep this, but alas it was offered for the giveaway! Wait until you see this apron. Vermont Apron shipped this to me and I will ship it on to the winner. It was only worn for the pictures I took and I did iron it for the pictures.

Here is Vermont Aprons description:
"Made of 100% Cotton. We paired a primitive weave with Lace Appliques and a pretty Satin Ribbon neck tie. The Lace hem and pin tucks add a dressy touch to the skirt. The bodice is machine quilted, finished in lace and tied in Pretty satin Ribbons. Machine wash and dry.The Bodice measures 8" across and 9" high.The skirt falls 28" from the 2 1/2" waist band and is approximately 42" wide. Each waist tie is over 40" long allowing a proper fit for most everyone."
