Constructed with attention to the highest quality of materials, precision sewing and dreamy details. Stunningly crafted and meant to be worn and washed and worn and washed and worn...
Fabric: 100% lightweight (5.3 ounce) Japanese Linen in white. 3.5 yards of linen were used in the construction of this beautiful apron dress.
Also Available in Black or Indigo Chambray.
Size: Free (one size fit's most) Extra yardage and long ties to accommodate a multitude of body types. Model is 5'9" 140lbs.
Fit: Apron dress is a flattering with openings on either side to wrap closed from the side you like. Extra fabric and long ties allows the apron to go over any clothing and fit most sizes.
Pockets: ALWAYS and generously sized.
Care: Linen becomes softer and more absorbent after each wash! Wash on low temperatures in lukewarm or cold water with like colors. Use the gentle machine cycle and a mild detergent to protect the fibers. Feel free to tumble dry on low temperatures. Remove from the dryer when still slightly damp to avoid the linen becoming stiff, and hang or lie flat to finish off the drying process. Iron...only if you can't live with yourself if you don't.
Styling: We've styled this with a simple pale pink colored linen top, a pair Zkano socks and our Pink Pom Pom bandana. For winter and holiday, switch up the pink linen top with a colorful flannel shirt and a light vest for warmth. Any look you style can go seamlessly from holiday cookie making to the grocery store with a stop for a lunch date with a friend. Our Culinary Salon Collection of apron dresses are meant to go from kitchen to street and look noteworthy in either setting.
