Fans of vintage workwear should head to Mother, who sell a fine selection of smocks, aprons, dresses and dungarees. The pieces are all beautifully styled and either secondhand or handmade with vintage fabrics.

I like to wear an apron most days when I am working around the house as whether I am cooking, cleaning, potting or on Mum duties, I find that dressing for the job helps me get that little bit extra done.

The range at Mother is stylish and practical so I am definitely tempted by a few of their designs. The Clover dress or Travail apron could well be winging their way to me soon...
