A dear friend of mine is an extreme gardener.  For Mother's day I would like to make her an apron.   She mentioned that she had seen one on a movie and that she liked it.  I was a full apron, but it had  large 'pouch', for storing fruits & veggies as you picked and it did go down to the knees.  Does anyone have a pattern or really any help on how I can make this useful for her?

Marthastewart.com has some fun apron patterns including gardening aprons, and the blogger Angry Chicken has a website dedicated to apron love-

To add to Mary's comment, I have an early 50's magazine that shows a gardener-handyman type apron; It is cut just like a butcher's apron but the bottom eight inches are turned up and stitched down to form the pockets.  The outer edge is then bound with bias tape, which also make the ties.
