I like it!
It might need fitting a little with darts but you could always do that once it's made as it isn't lined. I'm tempted to try it!

@clothmama have a look at Japanese aprons I use this pattern, I wear them all year for work over the top of a t shirt or Cami in the summer

This is what it looks like made up.

Oh I like that too @emmavmorgan - what materials does it make up in?

Just an update @sim @Aeseldyr I saw a woman wearing a very similar outfit yesterday and she wasn't a skinny skinny (although taller than me) and she looked fantastic, really think I'll try it. Are you going to Sim?

@clothmama I'm making one at the moment out of light dress weight linen and it's going to be lined in a cotton muslin so it will be reversible. I have 2 made from heavier trouser weight linen and a couple for work that are just cotton poplin.

Love that dress @Clothmama and tbh when you're thin like me it doesn't look good at all most times I'll just drown in things like that ;)
So go on and make one.

@emmavmorgan I absolutely love those apron tops. Does anyone know who makes them to sell?

(Or anyone on here fancy something crocheted in exchange for one?)
