It is reversible! Can you stand it? Tooooooooo cute!
Since I wear mine over and over and wash, starch (yes you heard me!) and iron mine so much I have to replace them regularly. Depending on the fabric I get 6 months to a year or so from each. I haven't made a reversible one though. Double wear!
Why starch? I started using a simple Niagara spray starch on each one because they get limp after multiple washings but I discovered a great secondary effect of the starch. If I spill on the apron it wipes off easily before anything soaks into the fabric. The starch creates a physical barrier to most spills. And yes, I am sloppy when I cook. I try and try but I always spill something, It has become a fact of life.
