Apron Dress

We made the Apron Dress in a few different fabrics but the most popular has been this black checked linen. Although very stylish, it does have a very "I must feed the chooks" kind of feel to it.
Another plus is that it looks great on most body shapes and can be worn by a Australian size 8 to 16.
