Me vs. the Smock Apron, Part 3

I decided to go with the armpit darts to fix my fabric problem and I am satisfied with how it turned out.

I will definitely be able to use this around the house and even out to run errands. I like the style of the apron a lot, but I think I will really have to overhaul the pattern to get the fit that I am looking for. I think that I can use the current pattern piece for the back of the pattern and I will just need to draft a new front. The amount of fabric needed to cover my ample bosom means that a simple waist dart isn't going to give me a good fit, yes, I know it's a smock, but I want a little shape. I'm thinking a princess seam. I think I will also be making the pockets a bit deeper too.

Now that the battle is over I can get back to my knitting :)

Thanks guys, I'm hoping to tweak the pattern a bit more to make it "perfect", I think this could be one of my favorite summer acessories!
