For playing about with layering, here is a pretty reversible apron to wear over a long length tunic.
Pretty front panels twirl as you move to give glimpses of the garment underneath.
A large front pocket is perfect for hiding little treasures.
The back is styled with a pretty cut-out. It fastens with 2 lovely bows.
Making up suggestions:
This example is in Liberty Tatum plum, and a star printed olive cotton.
I can imagine it looking good in needlecord for those cooler days.
