Here's the apron project I did today. I guess it took between 2 to 3 hours total. If you're not a sewing-type person, this might be too detailed for your reading taste, but there are lots of pics!
This old apron that I made about 9-10 years ago, was my pattern. I like the way it fits. When I made it, I think I just came up with the bodice shape myself. I'm an eye-balling seamstress. I've used many patterns, but for making an apron, I'd rather pin and cut. Anyway, this poor old apron has a big RIP in the front -- see it? The fabric is thin.
