I've always loved the aprons at Anthropologie...They're generally gorgeous, but I hadn't bought any in the past because they didn't seem very practical for when I'm actually cooking and baking. I always felt that the various trims / embellishments of the other aprons were too dress-like and I'd need an apron on top of those aprons so that I didn't ruin them.
This apron was the answer to that problem for me. The colour blocking is beautiful and elegant, but the pleats and piping are simple enough that it still feels like an actual apron as opposed to a dress. Pockets are always handy, especially in the kitchen when I'd need a pencil to jot down a recipe or a fresh tasting spoon. I'd definitely repurchase!

Beautiful and Functional
I love baking and needed something that was stylish and fun while functional. I ordered this and the tea and crumpets apron, I love them both!

I was very reluctant to use this apron for anything other than a hostess apron, but I was so happy to find that it is just as durable and washable as other aprons I owned. After making some chocolate cookies and getting batter on it, I was able to wash it and it came out looking like new. The only thing to remember is to hang it up to dry or immediately after drying, because it does wrinkle and, to me at least, it seems kinda silly to iron an apron.
I love my pot holders with pockets! They coordinate very well with my kitchen and are nicely padded. I'm very happy I purchased a set to go with the sewing basket oven mitts. They make my kitchen happy!

Great Quality Pot Holder
I was quite pleased with the Pot Holder that I recently purchased. The quality is nice and the facbric is thick. I like the details - I have all of the matching pieces to include the Oven Mit and the Apron. They look nice together and provide an old school feeling in the kitchen.

Functional and beautiful
Bought this to match the apron, and I'm very glad I did- high quality and thick enough that you barely feel heat when taking something out of the oven
I was attracted to this apron because of the colors. After trying it on I immediately asked if the designer was a chef. I was told that another sales associate designed it and that she was a designer and not a chef. Well, I am a chef and I can tell you that this apron is special and different. There are 2 pockets in the side which is practical for carrying tools and the addition of belt loops is unique so once the apron ties come around to the front they stay in place. The material isn't thick and stiff, which I do not like, yet it is substantial that it lays correctly. Whoever this sales associate is needs to design more. She obviously took into account not only beauty but function. The solid panel in the front also creates the illusion of making me look thinner! I have tried on every apron from Anthropologie and this is by far the best one. Thank you to whoever you are for designing in a thoughtful way.

Love This Apron!!
This is my first apron that doesn't just cover my waist. I absolutely love it! I am a bit busty for my 5'3" frame (I am a 32DD) and it covers my top pretty well. The bottom wraps around my sides and the apron has little belt loops to help keep the tie in place if wrapped around the front. I like the deep pockets on the sides for holding utensils or dish rags. Finally, my favorite part, I love how feminine it looks and makes me feel fantastic. Plus, the fabric is thick enough to not only hold a nice shape, but allow me to wipe my hands dry after washing them.

For a very slim person
agree with another reviewer, the top is too small. I am petite, quite skinny but a bit busty. So it does not fit me that well. fabric is very soft, although I'd have loved more solid. Somehow the color and pattern made me feel like a nurse. I plan to return it.
I ordered the blue apron and am in love with it. I usually wear aprons through the day to spare my clothing any messes. This apron provides total coverage in front and back. There are ample pockets and even slits to get to the pockets of what's under the apron! I'm going to order the tan one as well. The apron is soft, durable and quite classy!

Nice but thin
This Apron is a great design. It is plenty long and wide enough for any body shape and size. I will say, for the price I thought it would be a bit better grade linen. Perhaps thicker. For reference, I am 5'5" and 136 pounds. It fits me great with enough room to wrap the waist ties around twice which is what I like. The pockets fall perfect on me and are very useful in cooking.
