Happy Homemaking with Leslie Kane

A bit of flower power and practicality has brought back the look of ’50s vintage aprons

Fashion designer Leslie Kane of Intervale has created tailored jackets in linen and brocade for women, but recently took off into a more playful arena. Using a pattern she developed to fit all body types, she sews aprons for happy homemakers. Big flower designs are contrasted with geometric prints — all in washable and sturdy cotton fabrics. A bit of ric rac trim adds that touch of nostalgia — remember sewing class?

Kane finds interesting fabrics at shows in New York City or where ever she is traveling. “If I like it, I grab it,” she says. Anyone who cooks needs an apron so why not one that adds a design statement from the past with modern fabrics?

Having a new granddaughter inspired Kane to develop a line of matching aprons sets for mothers, daughters (ages 6 to 10) and dolls (American Girl)  in a variety of colors and patterns. Find her work at The Local Grocer in North Conway but call ahead as quantities may be limited.
