Easy to sew, easy to wear.

No fussy zippers or buttons, not a lot of fitting, comfortable to wear. You cannot go wrong. If you use a heavier fabric, I suggest making the pocket facing and perhaps the front and back facing from something that is lighter in weight. I have made this twice.  The first was supposed to be a fitting muslin, made out of some cotton sheeting type fabric I had, and it was so successful that it is one of my favorite summer pieces.  The second effort is a 180 g/m linen/cotton blend, and it is nice, too, but the first effort was more successful.  On the second effort, I sewed the facings down because the fabric was more apt to wrinkle. The front pockets were ideally positioned for my hands, and I did not make the rear pockets either time.  You could easily hack this to make an apron or dress.
