Rather than buying garden apron that you know is going to get dirty, make one out of an old pair of jeans instead. Start by cutting off the legs of the jeans an inch below the back pockets. Then flip it over and, starting from the zipper, cut right below the waistband to the side seam on each side. Then cut down each side seam and that's it; your apron is finished. You just put it on around your waist and fasten the button like you would a regular pair of pants. And the great thing is the back pockets are wonderful for putting in seeds, clippers or anything else you might need in the garden.
