Layercake lagenlook Apron

1 ready to ship

if a certain fabric/size shows as :"pre-order OR sold out", then there are 2 options:

1. it is a pre-order, i.e. we have to make it for you.
If this is the case, you will be able to put it in your cart and order it, and you'll realise that we wont be able to ship immediately (pre-orders usually take between 2-4 weeks)
2. we have sold out of the garments AND the fabric.
In this case you will not be able to add it to your cart, it truly is all gone.

Fabric availability update: We are currently awaiting new stock of Dark Teal. As a result, if your size in these colours is not in stock, it will take an extra 2 weeks before we are ready to ship your order. Order times for these 2 colours will return to normal by the middle of November. Thank you for your patience!

The Layercake Apron has a traditional bib front with buttons, but that's where the comparison with tradition ends. Unlike the apron of old, the Layercke Apron has a closed skirt in the back, flaring side splits and very big low pockets.
The shoulder tabs have 3 positions and the buttons can be taken off the ribbons, either to replace them or to wash the Apron without the buttons attached. The back has a swooping and extremely flattering waist-line and cross-over straps.
Our Aprons are all made using 100% pre-shrunk linen except for the Hemp, which does not just refer to its colour but also the fabric, which is 100% hemp.

NOTE: the jumper worn in the picture with the Denim Linen Apron is the Enchanted Mesa, a Stephen West design. More information about the jumper and kits we sell in this and other colourways, look HERE.

The Apron sizing is the same as our Smocks and Tabards (0, 1, 2 and 3) so if you know your Smock/Tabard size then choose the corresponding Apron size. However, the Apron shape is more open around the bust, so there is some more flexibility if you prefer to wear it more or less fitted.
