Julia Child inspired Apron

Like most people, I have been inspired by Julia Child. I did get even more into her with the movie Julie, Julia. I am not a great cook, but Trying hard to become one. Having Julia in this world helps very much. Studying her sensibilities and style has been an obsession for me. Never frilly, and totally practical. I listen to her cooking shows and interviews as I design and sew. Listening very closely to who she is as a woman and chef. My sewing techniques are practiced by again studying old craft aprons from the shoe maker to the iron smith. I have collected them over the years and I copy how they are made. I love love love the history and function of them.
This apron is made out of Levi Strauss reclaimed denim. I am so excited to bring this to you.
I am offering it in white stitch and classic blue stitch. I also am making the smock and full apron in this denim. You can find all of my goods on my etsy shop. Thanks for stopping by.

Simply Julia
