I think this is the fourth apron I have made by drawing around an apron my mother-in-law made for me a long time ago. (30+ years!) I really like how the tie runs through facings around the armholes making the neck fully adjustable but still only needing to be tied in one place. I made the ties long enough to wrap to the front and tie if you want. If desired, the armhole facings can be sewn on the back and pulled around to the front for a design accent which is how my MIL made the original apron for me.
Today, I finally drew up a paper pattern as I am sure this is not the last time I will make an apron using this same pattern.
