Creations by Diana is a business run by gather member Diana Dunham. The following reviews are for aprons that were purchased from Diana.
I love aprons and wear one every time I cook. I am very picky when it comes to my aprons. I don't want the plain Jane apron. I want pockets, length that protects my clothing, ties that will come completely around the back and then tie in the front.
My aprons are designed for function not just for looks. However I do want them to be pretty and something that makes me feel pretty while wearing.
The following aprons were designed for me with my special specifications.
The following apron was designed by Diana using colors that I personally choose. The pockets were added per my request and the ruffles were altered per my request as well. This is a well made, designed and attractive apron. It is from various weights of cotton fabric. It has a denim weight material for the pocket so it will be sturdy. I give this apron a 5 star and will be proud to give it to our youngest daughter for Christmas.
The ribbon ties around the neck and is made from a heavy weight satin silky material.
The upper pocket is nice and wide. It is made of doubled cotton and very sturdy.
The lower pocket is made of a gorgeous denim type cotton and is doubled for added strength. .
The three tiered ruffles are made of complementing shades of blue and very attractive and feminine.
This gorgeous apron is made from shades of purple/lavender. I just love the shades. It is a Mother/Daughter set that I had made for our oldest daughter and our Grand-daughter. The material is not quite as heavy as the blue one above, yet very sturdy and heavy enough.
The personal touch on this apron is the added flower buttons that adorn the waistline. They are so cute.
The ribbon that ties around the neck is made of wide heavy-weight ribbon.
The upper pocket is doubled and sown with extra care to make it durable.
The lower pocket is unique as it is sewn into the first unruffled skirt type flap itself and I love it.
I give this apron a 5 star and will be proud to give it to our daughter and grand-daughter for Christmas.
Although using the same material as the Mother apron, the daughter apron is a bid different when it comes to the ruffles. They are not pleated as much as the Mother apron is. I rate this one a 4 1/2 star but am still well pleased. I requested a pocket on it as well.
The one layer is not hemed so I fear it may fray a bit as it is washed. I still am very pleased with this apron. The hem would be on the inside anyway so it does not affect the look of the apron in any way.
Note the beautiful buttons on the aprons. They are on both the Mother and daughter aprons.
I saved the best for last. This apron was designed for me. I wanted it to be different than any I had seen Diana make and she did an excpeptional job with my requests.
I like to have an apron that has extra long ties on it so I can wrap them around the back then bring it to the front to tie. I like to tuck a small towel in the tie. Strange, I know but it is my way of saving my apron because I am bad about wiping my hands on my apron. I love to cook but I am a messy cook.
The length of the ties are PERFECT!
I am into Pirates these days so I wanted a pirate material. I wanted two pockets on the front and she designed my apron to my specifications just perfect.
Instead of a ribbon that ties around the neck, this apron just slips over my neck. I love it. It is just the right length and is is so "ME".
I rate this apron a 5
It is well made, attractive and just what I ordered.
It is about knee length.
I highly recommend her aprons! They are top notch! Well made and she goes the extra mile to please the customer.
If you decide to get an apron from DiAnA, please let her know I sent you.
Supporting gather members is my goal this year!
