Question Aprons?

How are they attached?

Do you make a sleeve and thread a belt through them or put ties on the sides?

I'm almost at that stage to make the aprons for my son. I could use any input.

Thanks

I would definitely have an underskirt.

I was taught that jingle dress dancers do not show their legs. If you have to hike your dress up, have something to cover your legs with while you sit down.
