This full apron protects clothing very nicely and works well especially with dresses. The lined bodice is gathered to the waistband and has one button on the back neck. The waistband turns into long ties to help you adjust the fit. The skirt is cut to be about 30" long from the waist. It comes around to the middle in the back, just like a pinafore. To determine size, simply give us a waist measurement (up to 50"). We would highly recommend our Tropical Breeze poly/cottons for this garment but any of the lighter weight fabrics will work well.
