    I am 6'3" and I wear them everyday. Try a bragard.

    For the pattern I just outlined an apron I already had to exact measurements

    Hows the apron shape holding up after washing? My gf made me some custom aprons (denim and khaki) but after a wash they shrunk and are too small or kind of oddly shaped now.

    That's a serious apron! I like how the pockets and straps give it a bit of an accent while still keeping things simple.

    Pre wash the fabric before sewing and or (and being the better of the two)reinforce the edges by sewing in a "blanket stitch", also be called a whip stitch or a crochet stitch on some Sewing machines.
