The other day I was working on an apron.
I took my French vintage fabric that I wanted to use for this particular one and, like most of the old French fabric, started to notice the imperfections and left over thread from the seam that was once intact.
Naturally, I started to clean it up and pull the thread out little by little
Then my mind started to wonder...I started to think about the person who once took the time to sew this same piece and where this piece of fabric has been over the last 100 years.
Personally, I like to see the small tears, stains and imperfections. 
It adds to the character of the piece....and I think we can say that about a lot of things in life.
Here is a sneak peek of the French Pocket aprons that will be coming soon. Simple, classic, modern and partially vintage :)

  1. Oh gosh Lindsay...I too think about the fabrics I use and the stories they could tell. Each little piece of thread holds a truth. Your apron is turning out gorgeous and I look forward to seeing more of your creations.
