Child's apron in Disney princess style
Perfect sizing since its an apron
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
kind of. I did Rapunzel style instead of the ones they show so there were some alterations. I also changed the back a little so she wouldn't have to wear a shirt under it in the heat at Disney World.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Super easy! ANYONE could make these (and should! How cute are they!!!???)
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really don't have any complaints but I did want her back more covered so I made the back into a bigger bow (the bigger the better, right?) to cover her back a little more.
Joanns! Went and found some perfect breathable purple and pink cottons. I also used some basic ribbon and some lace to embellish to look like Rapunzel's dress in the movie.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made to bow the size of the bodice part in the back instead of the small on around the waistline. I liked it A LOT so I will probably make this modification to all of the Princess aprons I make! I also shortened it a tad so that I could make it into a short set. (then I made shorts to match!) I cut the front to make a corset style bodice like Rapunzel's and I added SMALL sized lace.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Oh yes! We are going to Disney again in a few months and I have ANOTHER daughter so it's definitely going to be pulled out of my stash! We got SO many compliments on it and any girl that loves princesses it going to want to live in this comfy apron style dress!
seriously, if you have a little girl in your life that loves princesses, THIS IS THE PATTERN FOR YOU! It is so much fun to get those creative juices flowing on this! It's basic enough to make any of the princesses if you just put a little thought into it! It had to have been one of the things I had the most pleasure making and actually seeing my little girl wear! Now go buy the pattern and make it!!!
