This apron is super cute. The fabric is of good quality, and the construction is well done. I LOVE it. I feel like a 1950's sitcom mom when I wear it. I may just have to buy another apron from Overstock in a different pattern. The only thing that is a little different is the length of the strings that tie around the waist. They are super long, and designed to encircle your waist twice and tie at the side. I missed that in the photo when I ordered. I may trim them so they tie in the more traditional bow at the back of the waist instead.
I bought two of these aprons. One for myself and one as a gift. The quality is very good. The apron is made of pretty thick fabric and the stitching is good. I have no complaints. Its very cute. The only thing I didn't know, although it doesn't bother me, is the tie is very long and has to be wrapped all the way around the waist not just tied in back. I'm happy with the product.

Cute apron. I don't like that the neck has to be tied, but that is minor. The waist tie is really long and I wrap it around and tie it in the front of the apron.

love it! good heavier quality than flimsy apron I bought at a store. good coverage, soft material and the ties are long & adjustable. hate aprons that have to go over head or have the metal buckles they fall out of. tip: I do this with any clothes or sheets that are dark or bright colors that can bleed: soak in cold, plain salt water before washing 1st time. it will lock the dye in and won't run or fade. ex: I used a 1lb box for this apron and a black t-shirt. have been doing this for 20 yrs now!
I ordered two of these aprons and received them in the mail yesterday. I was satisfied with how they look, but when I read the fabric-care label, I was extremely disappointed. The information online said these aprons could be machine-washed and nothing was mentioned about drying the product. Unfortunately, the label on the aprons states "Hand wash" and "Hang Dry" and I imagine they will also have to be ironed. I would not have ordered them if the information online stated "Hand Wash," simply because I don't want to add more things to do in my busy every day life. I need "convenience" in all things possible. As for returning the items, I already have such a long "to do" list that I can't bring myself to add this to it. I will simply donate them to a charity and hope that someone has the time to hand wash, hang dry, and iron these simple aprons.
Darling apron. Kitchen work feels much more luxurious now, and it's easy on and off. My only complaint is that the breast part of the apron doesn't give full coverage for a "full bodied" woman. Maybe the manufacturers could think of a second size for bigger gals. The ties are certainly long enough for me (or anyone, for that matter), but the reason one uses an apron is for the coverage, no? Other than that, this is a well-constructed product that holds up well to washing and maintains its color.
