I changed the pattern up just a bit: one large pocket instead of two smaller ones, and I added about an inch in length. Nothing drastic. For the neck and waist ties (made oh-so-much easier thanks to a loop turner!), I used the yellow-with-little-pink dots for the neck and pink-with-big-yellow dots for the waist ties; this decision was made for me by the amount of fabric I had left after cutting out the main body of the apron.
For now, this is my new favorite apron.
