Material

Cotton

The retro 50s Smock Apron is based loosely on a vintage 1950s apron pattern that was in my great grandmothers collection-- altered to fit modern size ranges. This charming red polka dot apron is so easy to wear! Made to gently slip over your head and then tie at the waist. Wide straps go over shoulders and attach to apron in back at the waistline. (Shoulder straps are shaped and joined together across upper part of back, which is why it is sometimes called an "H back" style of apron.) Apron rests totally on the shoulders, placing no strain on the neck. Curved lower edges of front panel and sides add interesting scallop detail. Flattering shaping is accented by white bias trim on every seam line. Very comfortable style to wear. (Apron shown above is the "22W - 24W size" shown on my size 2X dress form.) Makes a great gift for the cooking/baking enthusiast on your gift list-- or for a very special treat for yourself!

You may choose one or BOTH pocket styles to further personalize your apron, if desired! (Please choose your pocket selection by using the drop down menu before adding the item to your shopping cart.)

* HIP Pockets (Specifically these are called "welt pockets"--like the back pockets on men's dress pants-- most of the pocket is on the inside with only a slim band of contrast fabric showing on the outside of the apron at the top of the pocket.)
* KANGAROO pocket (This goes across the front of the apron. The kangaroo pocket will be made using the same fabric as the body of the apron unless you specify in the "NOTE TO SELLER" box that you would like it made in the coordinating/or contrasting fabric to make the pocket stand out. )

SMALLEST SIZE (fits sizes XS/S/M)
Length: 30 in. from top of bib to bottom of skirt
Width: 40 in. at widest point of the hem, 10.5 in. across chest
Ties at waist are each about 22 in. long

STANDARD SIZE (fits sizes L/XL):
Length: 30 in. from top of bib to bottom of skirt
Width: 43 in. at widest point of the hem, 13 in. across chest
Ties at waist are each about 22 in. long

LARGER SIZE (fits sizes 22W - 24W):
Length: 30 in. from top of bib to bottom of skirt
Width: 46 in. at the widest point of the hem; 14.5 in. across chest
Ties at the waist are each about 22 in. long

GRANDE SIZE (fits sizes 26W - 28W):
Length: 30 in. from top of bib to bottom of skirt
Width: 54 in. at the widest point of the hem; 16 in. across chest
Ties at the waist are each about 22 in. long

Great care and attention is paid when I make these aprons-- there are no exposed seams or raw edges showing on my aprons! All seams are neatly enclosed for a sturdier and longer lasting finished product.

APRON CARE
Machine wash in cold water with mild detergent. Wash dark colors separately. Do not bleach. Tumble dry on low heat. Remove from dryer while still damp to minimize wrinkling. Press with medium hot iron as necessary.

Thanks for looking!

I am very happy to work with my customers before, during, and after each unique purchase! (**PLEASE NOTE** I am not always notified when I receive a review-- so that is not the place to try to contact me after a purchase... I cannot guarantee that I will see it to respond in a timely manner.)

Your return must be received by Laurie within 30 days of the date delivered to you.

YOU must also purchase tracking on your return package to document the date sent by you as well as the date the return is received by me. I recommend also purchasing insurance on the package to protect yourself against loss or damage by the USPS during return shipment.

FAQs

Packing slips/receipts are ALWAYS included in shipments. (Purchases marked as a gift do not show prices on the packing slip, similar to a retail store gift receipt.) Each apron is neatly wrapped in a plastic bag to protect the fabric. Purses are enclosed in cellophane wrap. (Packing slips are folded inside of the wrapping. Should the shipping materials or address label become damaged during shipment, this gives the Post Office another method of identifying where the package should go.)
I love working with my customers to create one-of-a-kind items to suit their unique personalities! Feel free to contact me to discuss customizing your order using different fabrics than what is shown in the listing photos.

Custom embroidery is also an option. Contact me for more information, if you want to add a name or monogram. There is a $10/per item fee for this added personalization. https://www.etsy.com/lauriesgiftsbiz/listing/252642799
As often as my schedule allows, I try to work with my customers to meet their unique deadlines. Please email Laurie to check to see if it is possible to work your item into the sewing schedule BEFORE placing the order.

There is a fee for the privilege of moving your VIP item(s) ahead of previous orders waiting their turn in my schedule. Read details here: https://www.etsy.com/lauriesgiftsbiz/listing/251785260
I do not keep an inventory. Listing photos show the original sample [purse, apron, or baby blanket] created to take photos for the Etsy shop listing. Actual products may vary slightly in (fabric motif) design placement due to the nature of creating everything individually from scratch. Nothing in my shop is mass produced-- everything is cut & sewn individually after order confirmation. No two items will be completely identical simply due of the nature of handmade creation by human hands. :)
ALL PACKAGES ARE SHIPPED WITH INSURANCE

(1) In the rare event that your package is damaged, or goes missing in shipping-- you will need to fill out and file an Official Affidavit at your local Post Office before replacement or refund.

(2) If your package tracking shows "Delivered" although you have not received it, please contact your local postal office. Also check with other household members, neighbors, etc. In many cases, the package or envelope will turn up!

If all attempts fail to locate your package, please contact me. You will then need to file a claim or 'Theft Report' with the USPS Postal Inspector which will require that you sign an Affidavit regarding the missing package before your replacement or refund can be processed.
I charge only ACTUAL shipping costs for all orders. (Postage plus insurance) Postage is calculated based on weight--so you always save money when ordering multiple items due to combined shipping. Most aprons are light-weight and are easily combined in shipping envelopes! (Purses don't weight much either-- two purses usually ship in one box for the same cost as shipping one purse! However, the shipping calculator does not accurately combine multiple purse orders-- so any overpayment greater than $1 will be refunded when shipped. )

First Class Mail is the economical default shipping option in the shopping cart. (Faster shipping options are available in the shopping cart when you need your order in a hurry!)
