Bird Cage Bow Vintage-Style Apron - Review

Well just look at these fancy aprons - designed and handmade in Norfolk (UK) by C’est Ça!


 Now, I was going to model the bow one, but although I'm not at all vain, since I'm not very well at the moment it's probably in the best interest of everyone that I don't! 

Material and Quality:
The material used is high quality 100% cotton and feels thick and not at all flimsy.  The apron neck straps and back ties are made of the same material, cut and folded for a perfect finish.
The stitching is perfect with not a loose end in sight.

Picture below shows the back ties are very well stitched and I can't see them ever coming undone. 

The aprons are machine washable at 40c and can be ironed on the cotton setting.  At the time of this review I haven't washed the apron but am confident it will wash nicely.

The apron measures 30 inches (76cm) from the front centre not including the neck strap.  I'm only 5 feet 2 and it fits really well, the back ties are in the correct place for my waist and the length would still be fine if you are taller. 

I think the price is fair as the quality is excellent.  
Bow apron £18.95, Standard Apron £19.95 and Panel Apron £21.00

 Also in the Bird Cage range are oven gloves, tea towels and tea cosies.   Available through quality independent stores - to find a local stockist call  01603 488019 or visit www.ictc.co.uk

Many thanks to Pam and ICTC for sending me the bow apron.
All opinions and thoughts are my own.  I was not required to write a positive review.  I only ever post reviews on products I like the look of, and therefore would buy myself.


  1. I modelled the panel apron on my blog recently, I really like it!

  2. Very cute. I think I prefer the panel one myself.


I love to hear from everyone so thanks for taking the time to comment. Please note comments containing links will NOT be published.
