The body portion 4: takes around the wearer as in Fig. 2 meeting and being buttoned or otherwise fastened in the front and the apron portion5 for about half its width may be a continuation of one side of the body portion preferably the over-lap side or be attached thereto and the other halfof said apron is loose and adapted to lap over the other side of the body portion preferably the underlap side as shown in Fig. 2 and be buttoned or otherwise fastened in position as shown i Fig. 3.
The apron could be attached or be a continuation of the underlap side of the body and in this construction it would have to underlap the overlap side of the body and 1 would therefore not be so convenient as the preferred construction described above.
