Lots of people, me included, don’t like the feel of a strap around the neck like many aprons have. That’s why I have been looking at older versions of aprons and the way the back fastening is handled. This one has a wider curved piece that goes around the neck back, and it is so much more comfortable.
I was afraid that the apron, minus the ruffle at the bottom, would be too short, but it works fine. I like making aprons out of decorator fabric because it wears well and protects you better. When the fabric is newish, the water just rolls off. That wears off after awhile, but is nice while it lasts.
