Atelier Apron Dress in Black Linen
JAPANESE CLEAR SOUP RECIPE
An exquisite work apron dress that easily transitions from kitchen to street. Gorgeous black Japanese linen of the flowy kind with extra yardage to accommodate most-sized bodies. Constructed by hand 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 black. 4.25 yards of linen are used in the construction of this apron dress.
Also available in 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 goes on easily over head with a large opening. The back ties to front and front ties to back for full coverage should you choose not to wear a shirt under...we choose to wear a shirt under.
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 the sweetest peach vintage top and a pair of Zkano socks, but we also love a simple linen button-down for fall. For winter and holiday, switch up the lightweight button-down with a colorful flannel shirt and a light vest for warmth. Any look you style can go seamlessly from Japanese Clear Soup making to an afternoon lecture with artist Katherine Sandoz. Our Culinary Salon Collection of apron dresses are meant to go from kitchen to street and look noteworthy in either setting.
