A note about size: The apron is currently available in one size only, which is labeled “Large.” The prototypes have successfully fit curvy bodies from 5’5” to 6’ tall and busts ranging from B-DD cups. The adjustable straps and tie waist make for a good fit on a range of waist sizes.

I hope to produce other sizes in the future, please contact me if you have additional sizing questions, please let me know if you would be interested in a smaller size.

In origami and in the book & paper arts realm a Mountain Fold happens when a sheet of paper is simply folded in half and creased. Open the sheet up and you are looking down at a Valley Fold. Flip that sheet over, the crease now forms a peak, a Mountain Fold.

At home in my shop I often wear an apron to protect my clothes, stash and carry essential tools with me in the pockets, and to have something to dry my hands on. The apron I wore did these jobs. However the strap that wrapped behind my neck pulled and chafed like a saw blade. Worst of all, with any kind of bust and any motion the apron shifted around so one headlight was always inevitably poking out one side! What girl would feel great wearing that!?

A few years back I was preparing to go teach a two-week tool making class for book artists at Penland School of Crafts in western North Carolina, which is a special place that I greatly respect. I wished for an apron that went beyond being a utilitarian clothes protector, I wanted a crisp, tailored apron that I could wear confidently knowing that it would stay in place over my “peaks.” I sewed myself the first of many iterations of this design and off I went to Penland excited to put my new workwear to use. I loved it!

Since then, with the help of my friend Jane, a supremely talented pattern maker, this apron has been tinkered with and refined to be comfortable, practical and stylish.
