- Linen Cross Back Apron: https://amzn.to/48LmSLi
This apron makes me so ridiculously happy. I want 5 of them...
p.s. they run small, but maybe not QUITE as small as some reviews stated. I'm not thin (or even medium!) and am quite busty. I went for the 3X... 2X (maybe even 1X) would have been fine. It's very flowy and forgiving.

My Favorite Painting Supplies...
The gold standard of painting and paint mediums would be Golden (Golden professional products ), Winsor & Newton (Winsor and Newton professional products ), or Liquitex (Liquitex professional products ).
