 Make a Kitchy/Craft Apron

Here's a look at the basic shape. You can customize it to your body rather easily.
1) The top/chest measurement is just about the same as the distance between your bra straps.
2)  The measurement from the top to the bottom curve is your preference.
3) Since the ties go around your waist and only you know that distance...make the width of the pattern equal to the front hip to hip measurement.
4)Once you know the width of the apron draw a curve from the end of the chest measurement to the waist.
5)Use a string or tape measure to figure the length of like the loop that goes over your head or two ties if that's the look you'd like. 
6)Use a string or tape measure to figure the length of the ties for your waist. Now is the time to decide if you'd like the apron tied in the back or swooped around and tied in the front.

Add seam widths to your pattern. Now cut your fabrics.

Along with the large apron pieces and the ties you may also want to cut pocket pieces. You can choose to use a swath of fabric equal in width to the apron which you divide into three (three pockets) OR make one single pocket OR attach a loop to the side seam for hanging a towel to dry your hands.
Ties and loop for around your neck are sew together the same way the handles on the totes are made.

The pix just below shows the placement of the ties and neck loop before its sewn. 
If you are making a swath type pocket group that goes from apron edge to edge insert now. As soon as I make an apron with one, I'll put the pix on this page. You have a choice to put the little pocket on now or after the apron is finished.

Once you've pinned the two fabrics together sew it around leaving an opening to turn it inside out. Pin and then top stitch.

I have to make other aprons for someone. Once I'm finished I'll take the photos.
