    It's just a separate over-apron that covers the front of the kilt, as opposed to a complete cover that goes all the way around. The kilt underneath is still a regular full kilt.

    Front only kilt apron:



    The "full-wrap" version went all the way around, fully covering the kilt.

    Hope that clears it up for you!

    Shaun's pictures illustrate it well. That is what is regarded as the 'earlier' version. The later versions used up to 1940 added a pleated section to cover the kilt's own pleats.
    Here is a full wrap type in the Imperial War Museum https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/30097669
