Our apron design is different to others, we refer to ours "tension-free" aprons. Most aprons have a loop around the back of the neck which can cause a lot of neck and shoulder tension if worn regularly, our wide cotton straps go over the shoulder and cross in the middle of the back for more comfort! And as our own shop aprons are of the same design, we can attest first hand to the comfort factor.
We have displayed a few on our French dressmaker's mannequins, which model them perfectly. They are fully adjustable and can be tied around the front as well, if preferred, with the extra long straps.
The linen used in the body of the apron is soft but durable, and a very fine quality. It was a real pleasure to sew with!
The pocket is made from a vintage French linen ticking which we had kept until now for a special purpose.
We have only a small number available at this stage, but we will extend the range to include aprons for children, and also more heavy duty aprons for wearing in the potting shed.
I would love to know what you think about our aprons? Or better yet, come in and inspect for yourself!
Until next time,
