Plus Size Mod Apron

Good morning. I have a question for anyone who might be reading this. I just sold this apron on etsy. It is a plus size and fits up to 4X. I have so far had 4 sales, 3 of them this apron in this size(not this exact print). I am wondering if I might be onto something here. My original thought when I stared selling on etsy about 6 weeks ago was that there is a void in the marketplace when it comes to plus sized aprons. Alot of really good cooks really enjoy food. Therefore, we do not all fit in the cute little aprons. Not all of us want to wear bbq aprons. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks for any comments in advance, and enjoy the summer weather! Lauren

You might be on to something. 3 sales on that apron in that size definitely sounds promising! I think I'd list some different patterns in that size and style and see what happens!

I think this is a wonderful idea. Especially here in the states where a size 5 just isn't the norm!

Very pretty aprons but pictures seem to indicate the bib part needs to be wider.

i just looked at the aprons on your etsy site, and i have a question about sizing. could you tell me what size the model wears, to give me a better idea of how they will fit me? also, i think i agree that the bib could probably be a bit wider to accommodate larger busts. :\

also, i just started a new blog for my cooking endeavors, so i am in need of a fabulous new apron!! :D
