Story and photo: Vivienne Pearson

It seems Byron is a shire of apron lovers. We had a great response to last week’s story about aprons, including a phone call from Toots Dunn, an 81-year-young lifelong Byron Bay resident (who still teaches tap-dancing!).

Vivienne Pearson, the author of the story, met up with Toots to accept the gift of a new apron. ‘I loved the story and remembered I had this apron in my cupboard,’ says Toots. Vivienne is delighted with her new pinny, including the discovery of the genius idea of having a hand-towel sewn in at the waist. ‘I’m a great one for wiping my hands on my apron,’ says Vivienne, ‘so this is a perfect addition to my apron repertoire.’
