I wanted an apron with a collar for myself because I am usually wearing a tee shirt in the Summer or a long sleeved sweater in the Winter. This way, I can get a little dressed up while I am in the kitchen. I brought a couple of my new aprons to Seattle for Thanksgiving, and had to leave them behind because my sister and my mom claimed them. I think they will be popular gifts for you too! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY If you know how to sew, you will be able to make this apron. There are detailed printing instructions to make this into a nice booklet to use and keep. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size fits most adults.
