Details of swap:
Do you love vintage aprons? Does it make your day to put on a frilly thing to serve cocktails and hors d'ouvres? Do you like to put on practical smocks for heavy housework? Does ric-rac rock your socks off? Then this swap is for you! (Thanks to BrookOwens for a super swap idea!)
You will be swapping one vintage-styled apron. That's it. Anything extra will be negotiated between partners. Aprons can be sewn or purchased and embellished. Embroidery? Trim? Applique? The sky's the limit! Let your inner June Cleaver run wild!
This is an international swap, although I'll try to honor requests to swap within your own country. Hopefully, since aprons are light and can be packed in an envelope, postage won't be too hefty.
To facilitate good communication, please post at least once a week in this thread.
Send any communication to the organizer with the subject Vintage Apron Swap.
