For the Love of Pinafores

If you've read the little "bio" about me on the right-hand side, you'll see that I love wearing my pinafore. The way that bottom ruffle flounces out with every step just makes me feel so feminine! They are just so charming, especially with the straw hats and bare feet! I thought I'd share a few photographs of us here at Tasha Tudor and Family, wearing out lovely pinafores recently for garden tours. If you have good pics of us from the tour, please, email them to us, we'd love to see!

L to R: Sophia, Natalie, Christina, Amy, and Jenna (A picture of Jenna! She's hard to catch!)

Little Sophia saw the tour group arriving and came running to greet us! (Sophia and Natalie)

But then she got distracted by the chickens!  (Amy, Sophia, and chickens)

Even Elizabeth Rose enjoyed the garden tours (and the watermelon):

Ellie was a very good helper on the tour, making sure everyone saw all of the best views:

The garden tours are done for the summer now, until September. It is always a bit sad to see everyone leave at the end of the tour. But we'll be seeing some of you in September, so we'll try not to be too sad!

Several of you also bought pinafores of your own on the tours, I think. We'd love to see pictures of you wearing your Tasha Tudor style pinafores, too! You can purchase yours here if you still don't have one!
Happy Pinafore-wearing,


  1. I adore the pinafores! I think I might have to have one.... :)

  2. I don't know how I could ever live without my pinafore! At the insistance of my daughter Jen,I purchased a pinafore very similar to yours, without the flounce, at the Adams Family Farm the evening of Tasha Tudors Memorial. We tucked it away that Fall for Christmas. Opened on Christmas morning, put on as soon as it was opened. It began snowing, which is not so common on Christmas day. I ran outside, arms stretched to the sky my daughter snapped a picture, my first of many of myself in this pinafore. My apron is the essence of me, the Mama. Patti King

  3. Dear Natalie and All,

    You all look so lovely in your pinafores! The babies look so sweet and dear!

    Here is a link to my blog featuring Seth's absolutely splendid art stand:

    I can't tell you how much we are enjoying it! As you can see it is handy in the kitchen and a delight in the library!

    You will also see the miniature art stand that Seth made for my doll little Tasha and a miniature chair like Tasha's art chair. Seth is such a talented woodworker!

    Here is a link to this year's goat kiddles, Lucy and Louisa May:

    Between caring for the kiddles and gardening we're kept busy doing our favorite things during this lovely and delightful time of year.

  4. Those pinafores are so lovely! and they look so sweet and comfortable. Perfect for summer and fall. And I cant believe how big Ellie is already. She is so beautiful! That photo of her with her father is beyond precious~

  5. I've got a bunch of your aprons, Natalie. I think I may just need a pinafore one of these days too. xo xo Cat
