Love this


A lovely summery apron in a soft medium weight linen/cotton, crossover straps at the back and two patch pockets at the front. A comfortable easy fit - no ties around the neck or waist... and pretty enough to wear for summer entertaining...

Each apron is crafted with meticulous attention to detail and finish. I pre-wash all my fabrics, to reduce the chance of shrinkage and improve colourfastness in the finished apron – it’s then line dried outside in the fresh air. The fabric is given a good press before laying out the pattern pieces and cutting out. Turnings are measured, pressed and stitched, thick turnings are soundly bashed thinner and smoother with a hammer, and all the thread ends are hand sewn into the garment.

FABRIC: 65% Linen 45% Cotton

SIZE: Medium-Large. measurements - bib top to hem 87 cm, 100 cm wide, bib width top edge 27 cm. Fits size UK 10-18. (Model is UK size 12, EU size 40, 168 cm tall).

CARE: Machine washable 30 degrees, wash with similar colours, slow spin minimises creases. Do not tumble dry. Hot iron.

POSTAGE: This item will be posted Royal Mail First Class 'Signed for', within 1-3 working days.
The apron will be carefully wrapped in tissue paper and mailed in a purple biodegradable bag.


Summer garden colours were the inspiration for this range of aprons - I have some roses this colour near the back door, on warm evenings the scent wafts into the house ... this colour also reminds me of a particular shade of sugared almonds!
