Blue Ocean Swirls- Featured in Apron.ology 2014, San Diego Fair 2013 2nd Place

I was interviewed for a story in Apron.ology by a contributing editor;  Danielle Mohler.  I noted that one of my favorite female artist was Lenore Fini, a surrealist artist, who painted in her glamorous clothing. Seeing those images of her gave me permission to dress myself in high fashion.   Growing up in Florida, always on the beach, I was attracted to this satin fabric that reminded me of the swirling ocean where I would sail and swim.


Ms. Dior’s Retro House Apron -featured in Apron.ology 2014, 3rd Place sewing San Diego Fair 2014



I created this  reversible house dress in memories of my grandmothers who taught me how to sew.  They often donned these beautiful house dresses to cover their day dresses, just in case company would  just stop by to visit,  they would appear graciously beautiful and coiffed.  I used an old vintage retro pattern combine the pink embellished material with a black/pink material, making it reversible in case you spilled something on the front.  Fabric and lace was found in vintage material warehouse in San Fransico in the bedding department.  Of course, I had other ideas!

Cover Girl of Apron.ology 2013!!!!!

What a surprise to find out that I am not only the COVER GIRL of Apron.ology 2013, I was featured in the magazine and my political aprons were also featured on the cover story line:  Party Politics:  A Bipartisan collection.  I was so overwhelmed with Joy.  I had sent these aprons minutes before the deadline.  My loving father had fallen sick and I was on my way to Florida to tend to his health.  I was noted that something special was happening by the magazines but I was so distressed I did not pay attention.  I got to give my dad a copy before his passing and he was proud.  Though I got my sewing skills and displince from my mother, my creative artistic talent was a loving skill he encouraged and passed on to me.

Created with tulle,, embellished stitches and loving hands!  SOLD!!! (I own this….available for photo shoots/images, etc.)


Southern Bell -Featured in Apronology Magazine 2014, 2nd place San Diego Fair 2014

My inspiration came from the Antebellum period when women wore hop skirs, corsets, pantalets, gloves and wide-brimmed hats.  Growing up reading and watching the Movie:  Gone with the Wind, I was inspired by Scarlett O’Hara’s use of her curtains to make her dress to meet Rhett Butler.  I thought, she should have had a fancy apron, in case he came by while she was in the kitchen!   3 tier flirty 1/2 apron with biased tape with unusual stitching made this apron a delightful fancy.
