    @acalnan - i was confused at first too, but found that if you print out all 13 pages of the template and put them together you can see it's full size.
    @coltrane - i measured the put-together template and it's 17"x51" and you need to cut one on fold, so 34"x51" for the body of the apron, plus enough for the waist straps and the pockets. it would depend on the width of the fabric you buy.

    How much should the template be enlarged?
