    Smile Overall

    Hello, everybody!

    I'm having trouble with the word overall in a text.
    The sentence describes the outfit of a lady and it says that she wore a plastic overall tied round her dress.

    What does it mean? Is that overall thing like a coat or something like that? The only meaning I know of this word is the clothes that mechanics wear and I don't think that is what she is wearing! lol

    Hope you can help me out with a synonym, a picture or whatever.
    Thanks in advanced!
