Rated 3 out of 5 by flyingsquirrelgirl there's a reason they don't show the back
I was quite excited about this apron, as I bake a lot and wear aprons all the time--and this looks like a really business-like piece, covering all those parts I usually manage to splash with flour anyway. I ordered the blue, which is the same lovely color that shows online. Unfortunately, while the apron is shown tied around the waist in the pictures here, the actual ties are attached quite low--I am 5'6'' and they hit at the fold of the hip on me, even with the necktie adjusted at high as is practical. So one is stuck tying the thing way way low on the hips--below where a low-rise jean would sit--or hiking the whole thing up, folding it across the pocket in the middle and tying it there, which is how I am wearing it at the moment. An additional problem is that when the apron is tied low around the hips, the tie takes none of the weight of the long fall of fabric off the back of the neck, and the pull of it is uncomfortable--like a rough halter string. I am keeping it because I plan to do sewing machine surgery on it, but if you don't want to do that, you'd better be really, really tall! Too bad; the design and quality is excellent in every other respect.

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.

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!
