Everytime I watch Sense and Sensibility (which I do pretty often) I get extreme apron/smock envy. There is a scene in that movie in which Marianne and Eleanor put on their aprons to do chores and I absolutely love their aprons! I have searched high and low for a pattern to make something similar and haven't found anything! I think tomorrow I will try drawing up a pattern and experimenting with sizing and sewing it up. It's the kind of apron that you put your arms in and then it ties in the back. If anyone has seen a pattern for one similar please let me know!
PS I found a pic! Here it is:
