flirty & functional

May 6, 2013



Susan McDuffie has always loved fabric and fashion. As a child, she taught herself to sew. First, she made doll clothes. Then her own.

Years later, after leaving an arts management job in Atlanta, McDuffie returned to her first love. She began making home accessories and apparel from vintage fabrics and antique lace for a local antique store. A chef’s coat was followed by a line of modern aprons.

Her best-selling “Mrs. Miniver” apron ($46) is made of soft, oatmeal-colored linen. There is also a child-size version ($24) for girls, aged three to five.

The slip-on design features three roomy pockets and a flirty ruffle. Machine washable, the aprons are one size fits most.

Many of McDuffie’s hip customers wear the shabby-chic-style apron as a topper, over t-shirts and jeans, or a beach cover-up. Others wear it for gardening and cooking. Even if you do neither, you can dress the part.

To find aprons and other McDuffie’s other vintage-inspired creations, visit McDuffie’s garden-themed store (opens May 10) at The BoneYard, 195 Raymond Hill Road, in Newnan. Check

Or order, contact her at 770-719-2900 or at
