Edit: I felt it important to add and clarify that there is nothing wrong with the pattern as I bought it in its original state and size. It was in my efforts to enlarge the pattern to a plus size where the problem began. Plus, Mona is a petite form, so any thing I size 'up' will not fit her properly.
Last year I bought a vintage style "H-Back" apron from an Etsy seller. In fact, it's the lilac colored apron Mona is wearing right now. I thought I could recreate it, but unfortunately, I'm not good at copying patterns. This is a style that is hard to find in the vintage apron patterns archives of most of the sites that sell them. Then quite by accident, after joining the Apronista site, I came upon a lady who had made a similar apron based on her Grandmother's apron. I wrote the young lady, Elisa, and expressed how much I liked her apron. Well, in answer to a prayer, she offered to sell me her pattern! Since she had an Etsy site, it worked out perfect! Well, I did say I'm not good at drafting or changing patterns. So I'm afraid the results were not as good as I had hoped. In this photo, the pockets look uneven. But actually, the apron is not draped properly over Mona. I was trying to even out the front and back:
This is the back view with the feature I really like about these aprons- the "H" back. As you can see, I overcompensated on the length of the back. Underneath you can see the really nice apron I purchased from another Etsy seller.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~
