Jessie Steele Apron Giveaway- CLOSED

One of you lucky readers is going to win an apron from Jessie Steele.  


Jessie Steele aprons were created by a mother and daughter after collecting vintage aprons for years. They combined the vintage charm and style with a 21st century fit and appeal. 



These aprons are not only beautiful and feminine, they are designed to make the woman who wears them look and feel good.

They have a huge selection of hostess, chef and children's aprons.

I especially love viewing them in collections with matching towels, pot holders and oven mitts.

I know you want one.

Here is your chance. 

Jessie Steele is giving away this fabulous Cream and Black Damask Chef Apron.


It's a durable sturdy apron with tons of style. You know how much that means to me.

Here's how to enter:


1) Leave a comment and tell me what you think is the  #1 quality in an apron. Make sure to leave your email address. 


2) For a second entry visit Jessie Steele on facebook and like them, then leave me a comment telling me you did it. 

Giveaway ends Sunday March 13th at 10pm MST.

Thanks for being part of our week of apron inspiration.


Enter the Imperfect Apron Giveaway HERE, and Jess's apron pattern giveaways HERE.

hmmm, you would think it's durability, but I might say cuteness :)

michelle523 said...

i would have to say that it does it's job and keeps me from getting messy. i am very messy in the kitchen

Courtney Elizabeth said...

Good quality and cuteness are tied. I want something that lasts but I also want something I love to wear.

Julie said...

It has to wash well...because I use an apron and have found a few that look cute but aren't really wash and wear items :-)

MandaK said...

Fabric. I hate aprons that are really thin material that absorbs water. When I wash dishes I want the apron to help protect my clothes, not just be another layer that gets wet (I'm a messy dish-washer!) (nibblesskribblesATgmailDOTcom)

Kevin, Holly, Kari and Bryce said...

My aprons need to have full coverage- top to bottom, side to side. Not only am I messy, but so are my short-stature helpers. Thanks!

Jennie Holt said...

I would say cuteness for sure, and that it washes well. these ones are SO adorable!

yeah, cuteness. :) My aprons hang for everyone to see, so it's important that they look good. haha.

durability is definitely first on the list, but cuteness is a very close second. :) Oh, and pockets...I love an apron with pockets!

I love a cute apron - but it has to be sturdy & fit right. All of the cuteness in the world doesn't make up for a flimsy apron.

Girl of The Grove said...

I believe the #1 quality in an apron is the way it makes me feel when I’m wearing it. I love feeling like cooking and baking is FUN instead of work. An apron makes me feel like I dressed for the occasion of baking (as funny as that sounds). : )

Mr. and Mrs. B said...

I LOVE when there is a detachable hand towel on the apron! I think it's great to be able to wipe your hands down while cooking/baking and not make your beautful apron a mess! krisbuck (@) hotmail (dot) com

gretam said...

What I love about an apron...I like if it is comfortable, wide enough to tie around my plus size waist and good coverage so that I am still not wearing flour after taking it off.

gretam said...

Heathery said...

It has to be easy to put on! I don't want several ties that need to be done each time. It looks like this one has a halter top, which is so much easier!

Gorgeous aprons. I would say that it covers me and is super cute. I'm a personal chef, I do a lot of cooking and want to look cute in my aprons.

My most needed quality is length! I need it to be long enough or I get flour and everything all over my pants- I guess I am either too tall or just too messy:)

She Looks Like a Mom said...

For me, the number one quality in an apron is how it looks. If it looks junky, chances are I won't wear it. A cute apron, however, will be unlikely for me to ever take off. ^_^

Suzie said...

gotta go for the cute!

Tündéri Lonka said...

yes, i want it! :D

Leah Claire said...

For me, the #1 factor is all about cuteness! I have aprons that I want to just wear as part of my outfit because they are so cute.

shirley said...

#1 quality is that it covers but cuteness is right up there!! Gorgeous aprons

Lizzardmoon said...

I love these vintage inspired aprons. They remind me of visiting my Grandmother who wore an apron every day.

Sarah@Neoteric.Traditional said...

I'm short and small, so adjustability is big for me!

Elizabeth said...

that apron is so cute! i think that an adjustable neck strap is the most important part of an apron, because i hate having to stick a safety pin up there or tie a knot in it because it doesn't fit right. maybe i'm just mis-shapen. either way, love this apron!

Elizabeth said...

Brooke Anna @ Mommy Does... said...

I think the number one quality is fit! I know I'm not the ideal shape, but getting aprons that allow for "spill over" is awful :D

I also think durability is a number one attribute :D

I had to think about this! I have to say the fit is important because if the apron makes me feel in-proportionate, I won't wear it.

mariahsmile said...

I think that the #1 quality of this apron is definately the cute print! The pockets will come in handy too!

Jen said...

I want an apron that is both pretty and also made of durable fabric, no sense if it looses its structure after one much needed wash.

Cher said...

I think durability and cuteness...

Courtney Soleil said...

I love it! So beautiful! I think my favorite quality in an apron is the perfect balance of functionality and beauty. I am very old fashioned, mainly because I grew up with my British grandmother living in the house with us - she always wore an apron, and nothing plain, always a beautiful vintage apron. When Grandma would "tidy up" she would put things in her pockets until she found a home for them (mostly MY bobby pins that were scattered thoughout the house).

Thanks!

Two Dollars said...

of course the most important thing is keeping you clean, but I think you want the second thing, so I would say comfort. I have an apron that is uncomfortable so I don't wear it as often as I would.

The most important thing for me when I look to purchase an apron is if it looks good! If I have company for a meal or party, I want to look cute, not "grandmaish".

Well if I was sensible I'd say washability - I want to be able throw it into the washer and dryer without worrying. But really it's the look of it! And the prize apron is gorgeous.

These aprons are adorable! I have two aprons that I never wear because it looks like I tied a bag round me, which gets the job done, but I want to feel pretty too. So I guess the #1 quality is cuteness! :)

It has to fit well on your chest. Sometimes if they are too loose you can lose some stuff down it!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

Jen said...

Durability. I want it to wash up well so I can keep using it. What good is an apron if it looks good once and can't be worn again?

Quality is number 1 but a being pretty is a close 2nd.

To be very feminine , have plenty of pocket space and have great all over coverage from the messes of cooking. Thanks for sharing the giveaway.

Nicole said...

I love cute aprons, but it also needs to be washable. Thanks for the contest!

I love that apron! I think the most important quality is for it to hold up to repeated washings.

Marcia said...

Absolutely how super cute they are! And you bet I'll be back after I 'like' them on facebook. Love ya, Kalleen!

Marcia said...

Too bad the best I could do was 'like' them, not 'love' them. But they are liked (on fb) now nonetheless.

For me, it has to be functional and comfortable to wear so it doesn't get in the way. But these are super cute and that is such a bonus!

I Love to cook, but I hate when my hands get messy. The problem is that I am a very messy cook. I need one that I can clean my hands on all day and wash and wear again the next. The bonus is looking chic while wearing it.;)

Useful pockets are my #1 need. And durability. I get my aprons so dirty...

The most important thing about an apron is that it is durable and won't come apart in my washing machine. Yeah that just happened to me this week. ugh!

Midwest Elle said...

Quality fabric is number 1! It needs to be able to get dirty, washed and worn numerous times and still be able to look nice. It also needs the right type of fabric that will dry my hands and not have beads of water dripping off of it.

Bailey said...

I loved what one person said about an apron needing to actually protect you from water and mess, and not just be a thin layer that's going to allow things to soak through to your clothes. But if I had an apron THIS cute.. I'd probably wear it when I made low-mess meals, and wear my not-so-attractive apron when I cooked with oil and things that could stain. ;]

Oh, and of course I had to go like her stuff on facebook. I'll be purchasing an apron for my mom's birthday soon if I don't win one. :D

I suppose it must be washable and still look great afterwards. I really need this cute apron because it would make me look like a cute young thing in the kitchen instead of a granny, plus it is my favorite color combo of black and white and so is my kitchen!

Team Levi said...

The #1 quality in an apron is style! It could be a dish towel wrapped around your waist otherwise. And Jessie Steel certainly wins in the style department.
