I liked the idea of a cross-over apron made using linen. I found this youtube video
and found an extra large men's linen shirt to make it out of.
Essentially you deconstruct the shirt (remove sleeves and cuffs and collar). The body of the shirt becomes the apron when worn back to front. Lots of fussing about required to get it to sit right. The sleeve fabric is used for facings and the button plackets used for the straps. I especially liked the cuffs made into pockets.
