This is my 3rd order. I wear these like apron tops not for working in the kitchen. This seller is quick with replies and orders and has worked with me on custom orders as well. These are adorable and the craftsmanship is wonderful. Definitely won't be my last order♥️
Laurie responded on Feb 2, 2023
Thank you for your kind review, Vicki! It's been great fun working with you on your unique apron orders! ♥️

This is my second order and I just am thrilled with these smocks. Laurie is an excellent communicator and does a beautiful job. Beautiful, excellent craftsmanship and utilitarian. Thank you!
Laurie responded on Dec 22, 2022
Thank you, Sherry. What a lovely review. Thank you for your kind words. You made my day! ❤️
Bernadette Monari on Nov 28, 20224 out of 5 stars
Bought this for myself. It has a lot of front, but not much coverage in the back.
Laurie responded on Nov 29, 2022
I'm very sorry that the apron didn't cover you in the back as much as you expected. It is possible that you might have needed to order a larger size to get the fit that you intended. [For example, the Smallest Size Pinafore fits me well from the waist up-- but because of my hip measurement, I need to wear the Standard Size to have enough fabric to go around my hips and allow the apron to hang right in the back.] I want my customers to be happy with the aprons I have made just for them. I do accept returns if an apron does not fit. Aprons returned to me in their original condition (unaltered, unused, unworn, unwashed) are eligible for a refund. Contact me through Etsy messaging for more information. ❤️

Frequently asked questions
MINDFUL PACKAGING: Can you leave the price off of the receipt? What's inside the package?
Yes, you can mark your purchase as a gift in the shopping cart. (Marking an order as a gift removes the prices on the packing slip, similar to a retail store gift receipt.) All packages include packing slips/receipts.
Each apron is neatly wrapped in a plastic bag to protect the fabric. Decorative cellophane wrap protects the Santa Purses. (Packing slips are inside 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 be delivered.)
CUSTOM ORDERS: Can I customize or personalize a product?
Yes! Feel free to contact me to CUSTOMIZE your order by using different fabrics, trims, etc. (This applies to my existing aprons: Chef Apron, 50s Smock Apron, Pinafore Apron, Twirly Skirt Apron, and Multi-Pocket Apron. I do not create new designs from scratch by request.)
If you want to add embroidery (adding your name or monogram) to an item purchased from my shop--there is a $10/per item fee for PERSONALIZATION. https://etsy.me/3zP8qR0 The embroidery upgrade must be purchased in addition to the apron you want personalized.
PLEASE NOTE: If your purse or apron has been customized, or personalized, or if the item has been altered by your request-- it is not eligible for return.
HANDMADE: Who makes your products?
Every item in my shop is individually handmade by me (no staff, no outsourcing) in my home in rural North Eastern Indiana. I do not keep an inventory of pre-made items. Listing photos show the original sample [purse, apron, or baby blanket] created to take photographs for the Etsy shop listing. (*First samples are often available as ready to ship items and found here: https://etsy.me/2MJPn6F) Subsequent products may vary slightly due to the nature of creating everything individually from scratch. Nothing in my shop is mass-produced-- everything is individually cut & sewn by Laurie after order confirmation. No two items will be completely identical simply due to the nature of handmade creation by human hands. 😀
SHIPPING CONCERNS: What if something happens during shipment? GOOD NEWS! All packages ship with insurance.
(1) If your package is damaged or goes missing en route-- an Official Affidavit will need to be filed by the recipient via the USPS before replacement or refund.
(2) If USPS tracking shows "Delivered" although you have not received it, please contact your local postal office. (GPS may be used to pinpoint the delivery location.) Also check with other household members, neighbors, etc. In many cases, the package will turn up!
(3) If all attempts fail to locate your package, please contact me. The next step is filing an insurance claim, which will require that YOU sign an Affidavit regarding the missing (or damaged*) package before replacement or refund.
➜ USPS requires evidence of damage (item + package) so keep everything until settled.
OTHER CONCERNS AFTER RECEIVING ORDER? Message me -- I'm ready and willing to help!
✏️ 1) Please message me using Etsy's messaging system should you have any questions, concerns, or problems with an order from my shop. I would be happy to help in any way that I can.
➜ Etsy does not always send me a notification when I receive a review so that is not the correct place to initiate contact with me if you need help with your order because I may not see the comments to be able to respond promptly. ➜ Messaging is the quickest way to get my attention.
💬 Please also keep in mind that the relentless prompts to leave a review for your order come directly from the official Etsy Marketplace, not individual sellers. Unfortunately, I cannot turn that feature OFF.
CAN I RETURN AN ITEM? Yes. My return policy is based on common sense principles, as listed below:
✔️ Stock items that are returned in the same 100% BRAND NEW, UNALTERED, & UNUSED condition as they were received will be eligible for a full refund. Buyer pays return postage plus tracking & insurance required.
🚫 IF there are any signs of wear or damage (food/ stains/ cosmetics/ human or pet hair; perfumes, smoke, or other pungent odors, etc) ~OR~
🚫 IF damage occurs due to improper packaging for return shipment, then the item refund may be reduced by half. Please package the item carefully to avoid a loss in value.
🚫 Used items that have been altered, worn, washed, or discarded after receipt do NOT qualify for the Etsy case resolution system, according to Etsy's policies. ➜ https://www.etsy.com/legal/policy/cases-policy/243306189901
WHAT IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR RETURN? Personalized and/or customized items, and digital patterns
🚫 PERSONALIZED ITEMS: If your purse or apron has been personalized with embroidery, it is not eligible for return. This makes the item ineligible for resale in my shop.
🚫 CUSTOMIZED ITEM: If your purse or apron has been customized with materials specifically requested by you, OR if the item has been altered by your request-- it is not eligible for return. These changes make an item too "single-customer-specific" and thus ineligible for resale to the general public.
🚫 DIGITAL PATTERNS: Due to the nature of digital downloads, once the digital pattern file has been downloaded, it is not eligible for cancellation or refund.
