My husband calls me the "full contact chef." In other words, I don't just need an apron, but a full-body drape. So I'm drawn to aprons that are more full-coverage, like a smock. Marcy Butler sent me one of her new aprons to check out and I really fell in love with it. This apron is heavy and substantial, made of real linen. It has buttons in the back that let you adjust the size and make it stay put. It's a beautiful apron, but also practical for real work in the kitchen. I also love how they have a matching kids' apron, called The Lulu.
