* The model in the pictures is 5'7" and wearing Layercake Apron size 0.
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.
ABOUT OUT OF STOCKS: if a certain fabric/size shows as :"pre-order OR sold out", then choose the "pre-order" variant instead. If its price then shows, it means we DO have more fabric, the garment just needs to be made for you, so if you place an order for a pre-order item, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.
If you choose the pre-order variant and it still shows the "pre-order or sold out" text then both the garment and the fabric are out of stock and we do not expect any new fabric in the next couple of months at least.
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.
