My sweetheart has offered to help me get my sewing room better organized. He says I need to "downsize". Please check out thestockroom.etsy.com as he will be adding new things daily.

Smoke free, super clean environment!!!

*************************************************

Below is some information on sizing for the various aprons currently listed. If you are long waisted or have a large bust, some adjustments may need to be made. Please convo me if you have questions about sizing.

Please note that I am unable to take returns on aprons that are greatly altered. I am more than happy to work with you to get the best fit possible. :)


FLIRTY EVERYDAY - larger size in ()
across the top of the bib is about 9.5 (11) inches;
the neck straps are about 6.5 (7.5) inches from the "shoulder seam" closest to the neck to the top of the bib;
the length of the bib (at the center front to the waist) is about 10 (11.25) inches;
the skirt is about 20 (24) inches from side to side where it is attached to the bib;

shoulder to hem is 34 inches.
Note: the entire apron with the exception of the neck straps is cut on the bias. Also, because of the way this apron is cut, the length of the ties is limited and due to waist size, you may not be able to tie into a bow.


DESPERATE EVERYDAY
this apron can be made in the two sizes - one fitting 6-12 and 14-18
this apron was designed with a narrow bib being about 8 inches across the center part of the smaller size versus 10 on the larger size;
side seam to side seam of the smaller size is about 15 inches versus 18 on the larger size;
ties are about 30-31 inches attached to each side; skirt front at the widest part on the smaller size is about 22 inches versus 24 on the larger size;
skirt length is about 16 inches on the smaller side versus 16.5 on the larger size.


VINTAGE EVERYDAY (3 sizes - small to medium, medium to large and large to extra large)
bust - 34-36 (38-40) (42-44)
across the top where the neck straps attach is about 10 (11) (12) inches;
from waist tie to waist tie (across the front only) is a little more than 26 (29) (31) inches;
from tie end to tie end is about 72 (76) (78) inches;
from the center front of the bib to the hem is about 29 (30) (30.5) inches.


RADICAL EVERYDAY
each gathered area of the halter top under the bust is about 4.5-5 inches for 9-10 inches total under the bust where it is attached to the skirt;
from waist tie to waist tie is about 21 inches;
from tie end to tie end is about 48 inches;
from the center under the bust to the hem is about 27-28 inches;
note: the skirt on this apron is cut on the bias.


LADY MADONNA MATERNITY
there is approximately 43 inches of fabric across the skirt of the apron;
it is about 28-29 inches in length from the shoulder and can be shortened or lengthened. if you have really broad/thick shoulders or a big bust, the straps can be lengthened. if you look at the back shot of the black toile apron, you can see how lengthening the straps allow more room.
