This is super! I have been on an apron kick lately. Aren't they fun to sew?

Thank you! And yes, the bib parts on the actual pattern are just flat pieces, so no fitting issues.

In the thumbnail picture, this apron and your giant heart cupcake apron were so similar to current Butterick 5726 that I thought that was the pattern you were reviewing at first. It appears that this vintage Simplicity pattern wouldn't have the bodice fit issues I had with B5726. And I love love love your Dia De Los Muertos fabric! I peeked at your blog and the DDLM hobo bag was wonderful as well.
