THE "BETTIE WHYTE" FRILLY APRON

We created three examples of exquisitely-tailored, vintage-inspired aprons based on visions of the perennially-popular television comedian and star, Betty White. We looked to one of Betty's original famed tv roles as "homemaker!"

Our apron is suitable for preparing the perfect dinner party, or for serving a special dinner to your devoted spouse. "Stylish aprons make a comeback, strings attached," claims the The Globe in July, 2010: "It's about being feminine and frilly and whimsical and fun," says one informant. And aprons have been seen recently on tv's Mad Men and Desperate Housewives. Can your kitchen be far behind?

I remember high school days holding afternoon formal tea parties and serving meticulously iced and decorated petite-fours and rainbow-hued peppermints handmade in our kitchen. Mom and I cooked for hours starting days in advance. We always wore aprons with bibs to cover our informal clothes, then changing later to our frilly matching "mom and daughter" half-aprons for serving my high school girlfriends and their moms.

You may choose an apron with a bib or without. The bib style has straps that crisscross in back and button at the waist, giving you two adjustable buttons (see below in back view of organza apron) plus waist ties for creating a fluffy bow in back. Fine pima cottons, crepes, and crystalline organzas come in many colors, and you can add contrasting ruffles in prints or in the same fabric. The apron is adorable when highly embellished with extra ruffles, ribbons, bows, rosettes, and butterfly appliques. You may request appliques, colors. or designs that you have in mind but don't see on our page. We also make chokers to match. And yes, the images behind our apron photographs are in fact, vintage china plates!
