Cape is to Batman, what apron is to Housewife?

My cheery Cleaning Apron. A statement of beautiful femininity. I have worn it just about everyday since I made it. I've cut the lawn, cleaned the house, conversed with the neighbors and sewn a few projects in it. It's like a superhero's leotard, it makes me feel powerful or at at least cute while I clean. (For those who've asked I tried to pattern this after a picture I saw online of the Emmeline Apron. It was fairly easy to make, straight skirt, gathered top, Wa-La!)

I love it and want to know how you made it!

I just made it up as I went. A straight rectangle for the skirt, and a gathered rectangle for the bosom and then just made a few pockets and lined it all and added a tie.

I LOVE your apron, you are really talented! I am just barely getting into sewing and can't wait to tackle an apron. It's so fun to be pretty while cleaning! (All you are missing now is the pearl necklace!)
