What's a flounce?

We decided that Grandma Rose needed a new apron for Mother's Day. So I made my mom an apron with a flounce so she could flounce around the kitchen. Funny thing was, my husband had never heard of a "flounce" before, so he learned something in this process as well. Apparently, Steve hasn't flounced before. :-)

Angelique picked out the fabrics for me. She thought this fabric would make the best apron for Grandma.
Abby was the model and she flounced around in our kitchen to make sure that the apron did what it was supposed to do.

Grandma Rose loved the apron.

Just in case you aren't familiar with how to flounce with a flounce, here are the official definitions:

flounce 1 (flouns)
A strip of decorative, usually gathered or pleated material attached by one edge, as on a garment or curtain.
tr.v. flounced, flounc·ing, flounc·es
To trim with a strip or strips of gathered or pleated material.

flounce 2 (flouns)
intr.v. flounced, flounc·ing, flounc·es
a. To move in a lively or bouncy manner: The children flounced around the room in their costumes.
b. To move with exaggerated or affected motions: flounced petulantly out of the house.
2. To move clumsily; flounder.
The act or motion of flouncing.

I've been meaning to have Dad take a pic of me in my "flouncy" apron but keep forgetting when he's around. I fixed the neck strap & now it fits great. Was ready early on Tuesday so I had it on to fix dinner & again when I got home from Britton. Love it!! Thank you ever so much!
