Clothing designer Rachel Pearson couldn’t grow more hands, so naturally she tried to sew them.
The result? A mother’s little helper of a utility apron inspired by the bar apron Pearson wore in her waitressing days.
The mommy version is the cute miniskirt of the apron world. It’s trim (24 inches wide and 11.5 inches tall with no gathers), striped (made from soft organic cloth), and comes with extra-long strings (easy to tie in a bow in the front).
Our favorite features: deep pockets perfect for bottles and small pockets sized for kiddo detritus like Legos or pacifiers.
Making life sew easy.
