{Holiday Gift Giveaway #18} Hostess with the Mostest Aprons

I didnt appreciate the necessity for aprons until I became a wife and mother. I didnt appreciate the necessity for pretty aprons until just recently, when I discovered that feeling pretty while cooking actually made cooking more fun! Aprons dont have to be that piece of so-so cloth you feel compelled to throw over your head when its time to slave away over the hot stove (aka the enemy) in order to protect your clothes from grease stains and the flour that ends up all over the place (how does that happen, anyway?).
Really? You didnt know that? Well, now you do! And Im going to show you something that is going to totally make you want to start collecting aprons for yourself or a very loved female family member

Introducing: Hostess with the Mostest!

I fell in love with the beautiful, feminine aprons by Hostess with the Mostest while browsing Etsy and was thrilled when Lisa, talented seamstress and designer, agreed to be featured and give away one of her aprons here! I think that once you take a look at her aprons, youll fall in love with something as well.

About Hostess with the Mostest:

Aprons bring back memories from when I was a child and my Mother wore them every time she was in the kitchen. I have been sewing since the age of 11. My Mother was an avid seamstress and crafter. I could tell she enjoyed teaching me to sew. I always thought if I wanted more clothes in my closet I might as well take advantage of this opportunity. As an adult, I continued to sew clothing and in the late 70s began to sew home decor as well. I have worked in the corporate world for years, but never really enjoyed it. I looked forward to free time on weekends so I could release my creative juices! Today I am a grandmother of 17 and loving every minute with them and enjoying my favorite pastime sewing!

Style and Sophistication:

Im so impressed with Lisas versatility when it comes to apron design! She makes halter aprons, aprons that look like chic dresses, full length aprons and half aprons, and even aprons especially for the garden! Theres really something for everyone. Oh, and did I mention she includes girls aprons as well? Scroll down for a very sweet giveaway after my review

My Thoughts/Review:

It is so obvious when looking at an apron made by Hostess with the Mostest that she is into details. Thats really what gives her shop that extra zing she isnt just someone out there making aprons she is really good at what she does! Both designing the aprons and putting them together. Lisa sent me the apron on the left to review. Believe me, my photo doesnt do it justice. It is gorgeous! Every detail really just makes this apron. From the retro pocket with the bow, the lacing at the neck, and the buttons, this is a flattering, sophisticated apron. And I feel very pretty in it!
My apron has nice, long ties that you can tie into a fancy knot at the back of your neck and around your waist. I like that the tie around the neck isnt a fixed length because it makes it easy to put the apron on and adjust it so that it fits me perfectly. The pocket isnt just for decoration you can use it to stash a recipe card or whatever you might need in the kitchen. Its super easy to wash, too!
All of Lisas aprons are very professionally made. All seams are trimmed and serged (no unraveling), and they are made in a smoke-free, pet-free home. Im very happy with the apron I received!


Lisa of Hostess with the Mostest has my admiration for the quality of her work and the timely arrival of my apron! She is a wonderful person to correspond with, too. I recommend checking out her inventory!

Note: She recently changed from The Hopeless Romantic on Etsy to Hostess with the Mostest, so youll have to go to the former to check out her recent sales and her 100% positive feedback.

Buy it!

Most aprons can be purchased for between $20.00 and $25.00 a sweet deal, in my opinion. 🙂
