haha That was my thoughts too! When I made the actual "apron" part pattern. I measured my waist across how far I wanted it to come, and then measured down how far I wanted it to hang, and then took a piece of that packaging paper that comes on the huge roll and cut it to those dimesions and then I just rounded the edges to make it more apron like and thats how I cut my apron out. So that way it fits perfect!

Otherwise im sure I could make up my own pattern.......would love one that tied in front but the ribbons would have to be like 45 feet long lol

ETA the apron fits all the way from hip to hip, I dont want my tummy showing on either side!
Good idea! If you don't know how to do a zipper (I didn't either, i had to watch like 10 youtube videos on it till I found a method I thought would work lol) you could always add small strips of velcro?
