|This is the Style #1 version of this 1940s vintage pattern. Simplicity 4825 comes in small-med-large, and as is typical of patterns from the past, it only comes in one size per envelope. My pattern is size small. |
The one thing that surprised me was how large the heart looks on the actual apron. I didn't get that impression from the drawing on the pattern envelope. Otherwise I think this a very cute, kitschy pattern. I followed the pattern and directions exactly on this apron, and it was fairly easy. I believe any beginner could sew this project. If I choose to make this particular apron again, I would scale down the size of the heart bib.
If you are into retro styles and apronology, I highly recommend you get your hands on this pattern. I've seen many copies of this pattern available for sale on many vintage pattern dealer sites and on Etsy.
