The retro 50s Christmas Smock is based loosely on a vintage 1950s apron pattern that was in my great grandmother's collection-- altered to fit modern size ranges. This version is made with charming gnomes in classic red, white, & black. "Gnome for the Holidays” coordinating fabrics are from Timeless Treasures. This comfortable apron is so easy to wear! Made to gently slip over your head and then tie at the waist. Wide straps go over shoulders and attach to the apron in the back at the waistline. (Shoulder straps are shaped and joined together across the upper part of the back, which is why it is sometimes called an "H back" style of apron.) Apron rests totally on the shoulders, placing no strain on the neck-- making it super comfortable to wear all day. Curved lower edges of front panel and sides add interesting scallop detail-- accented by coordinating bias trim on every seam line. Makes a great gift for the cooking/baking enthusiast on your gift list-- or for a very special treat for yourself! Great care and attention are paid when I make these aprons-- there are no exposed seams or raw edges showing on my aprons! All seams are neatly enclosed and topstitched for a sturdier and longer-lasting finished product. I do not keep an inventory. This apron is not sewn until after order confirmation. Apron in photos is the original sample sewn to take listing photos and is ready to ship. Other sizes/options are made to order. As with any handmade creation, fabric design placement will vary from apron to apron.

●✿● CHOOSE TO ADD POCKETS-- OR NOT ●✿●
✿ HIP Pockets (Specifically these are called "welt pockets"--like the back pockets on men's dress pants-- most of the pocket is on the inside with only a slim band of contrast fabric showing on the outside of the apron at the top of the pocket.)
✿ KANGAROO pocket (This goes across the front of the apron. The kangaroo pocket will be made using the same fabric as the body of the apron unless you specify in the "NOTE TO SELLER" box that you would like it made in the coordinating/or contrasting fabric to make the pocket stand out. )
✿ You may also choose to add BOTH types of pockets

APRON CARE
Machine wash in cold water with mild detergent. Wash dark colors separately. Do not bleach. Tumble dry on low heat. Remove from dryer while still damp to minimize wrinkling. Press with medium-hot iron as necessary.
